Journal Article


Download full-text (Open Access)

Abstract


  • Personality disorders have received limited recognition as a public health priority, despite the publication of treatment

    guidelines and reviews showing effective treatments are available. Inclusive approaches to understanding and servicing

    personality disorder are required that integrate different service providers. This viewpoint paper identifies pertinent

    issues surrounding early intervention, treatment needs, consumer and carer experiences, and the need for accurate and

    representative data collection in personality disorder as starting points in mental health care reform.
