The online Test for BPD may suggest that you have borderline disorder, or traits of the disorder. Your question may then be, “How can I locate a psychiatrist or other mental health professional in my area who is experienced in diagnosing and treating borderline disorder?”

The following referral source is the most likely to be of help to you:

Borderline Personality Disorder Resource Center

21 Bloomingdale Road White Plains, NY 10605
Office: 888-694-2273

If you are unable to locate suitable help from the BPD Resource Center, you may wish to contact:

  1. Your local community mental health center listed in your telephone directory. Specifically ask for help for someone with borderline personality disorder;
  2. Your local district branch of the American Psychiatric Association (APA), or the
    American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP), and ask if they can
    direct you to several psychiatrists or other clinicians in your community who are
    skilled in the area of borderline disorder.
