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 check our quality standards every August to make sure they are up to date.
