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.

Keeping quality standards up to date

We checked this quality standard in 2017 and it is still up to date.

Next review: August 2018.
