Stress exposure and well-being: correlates of meeting criteria for bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, or both
ConclusionBorderline personality disorder alone or in combination with bipolar is associated with worse economic, social, and health outcomes than bipolar alone. Borderline can resolve with evidence-based treatment, and it is critical to correctly differentiate between the two conditions, so people with borderline and/or bipolar have the optimum chance for recovery.

A systematic review of longitudinal studies of suicidal thoughts and behaviors in first-episode psychosis: course and associated factors
ConclusionsThe high prevalence of STBs following onset of psychosis highlights the need for early detection and intervention and ongoing assessment of suicidal risk throughout follow-up, with attention to identified risk factors. The heterogeneity of the studies precluded a meta-analysis and several factors were each assessed by a single study. Additional well-designed longitudinal studies of STBs and associated factors are warranted. (Source: Social Psychiatry and Psychiatric Epidemiology)
