Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Treatment of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) in Italy has a relatively recent history. In the last few years, based on the increasing number of BPD patients admitted in Italian Mental Health Services (MHS), several regions have introduced treatment for BPD among their clinical priorities. A general ‘call for action’ has been launched within the psychiatric community. The aim of the current review is to describe the state of the art of research and clinical programs for personality disorders in young people. The Italian clinical context will be described with a focus on the transition discontinuity of care between adult and child/adolescent services. Prevention and early intervention programs available in Italy will be reviewed and a new agenda will be discussed. © 2020 Elsevier Ltd
