Having a personality disorder limits a person's ability to interact socially, function within a family, or cope in a workplace setting. At worst, the condition can lead to suicide, drug and alcohol addiction, and harm to others. In this article, you'll learn the general features, proposed causes, assessment findings, nursing interventions, and recommended treatments for managing personality disorders.
