Welcome to your Borderline Personality Disorder Questionnaire This is a quick nine question test - no real scoring here - if you answer True to any question you need to consider whether you need help.
This Borderline Personality Disorder Test (BPD test) can help determine whether you might have the symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD). Use the results to decide if you need to see a doctor or other mental health professional to further discuss diagnosis and treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder. This questionnaire is NOT a diagnostic tool - mental health disorders can only be diagnosed by a mental health practitioner.
If you're taking this on behalf of someone else, try and answer as you believe they would. Ideally you'd get them to take the questionnaire.
Please note we do not store any answers to this questionnaire - what you note on your action plan is up to you.
