Deep Breath In - EUPD with Leisha Davies, Soumitra Burman-Roy and Marie Stella McClure

Personality disorder is often referred to as the “Cinderella” diagnosis of mental health. Around 1 in 20 people is estimated to have a personality disorder, and it is a neglected and under-resourced area of our healthcare system. In this week’s episode, we discuss the stigma surrounding personality disorder, which can often manifest itself i n high levels of anxiety for both patients and GPs, when it comes to diagnosing and managing it, and how to help a patient come to terms with their diagnosis. With suicidal ideation being experienced by many people with a personality disorder on a regular basis, we also talk about how we may best manage a situation of a patient in crisis presenting in primary care. Our guests: Leisha Davies is a clinical psychologist, originally from South Africa, who currently works in private practice. Soumitra Burman-Roy is a consultant psychiatrist at the South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust . He also works for Maudsley Learning, an organisation which provides mental health training for primary care.Marie Stella McClure, who was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder at the age of 38, is the author of ‘Borderline: a Memoir’, a book about her life and experiences of BPD.

In 2013, DSM-5 urged for further research on non-suicidal self-injury (NSSI) and defined NSSI disorder (NSSI-D) for the first time separate from borderline personality disorder (BPD). However, research on the comorbidity between NSSI-D and BPD symptoms is still scarce, especially in adolescent populations. The current study selected 347 adolescents who engaged at least once in NSSI (78.4% girls, Mage = 15.05) and investigated prevalence, comorbidity, gender differences, and bridge symptoms of NSSI-D and BPD. Network analysis allowed us to visualize the comorbidity structure of NSSI-D and BPD on a symptom-level and revealed...

This discrepancy may reflect differences in controlled confounders but also the lack of consideration of the relationships between confounders. In particular, few studies have examined whether controlled variables mediated rather than confounded the relationship between cannabis use and suicide. Participants were 1034 college students who completed questionnaires assessing cannabis use and symptoms of cannabis use disorder (CUD), suicidal ideation, depressive and anxiety symptoms, and borderline personality...
