This quality standard covers assessing and managing borderline and antisocial personality disorders. It describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement.

It does not cover children and young people with an antisocial personality disorder or children with a borderline personality disorder. NICE has published a quality standard for antisocial behaviour and conduct disorders in children and young people.
