What Causes Borderline Personality Disorder?
Is borderline personality disorder genetic? Are there other causes? Science says that borderline personality disorder can be caused by any abuse suffered during childhood or developmental stages in one’s life, as well as genetic factors.
For many people, traumatic abuse in childhood can lead to changes in the brain that cause it to fracture into multiple personalities, and for others, those traumatic events lead to borderline cracks rather than complete and separate fractures. This trauma can exacerbate genetic predispositions to the condition as well.
