In general Personality Disorders (PD) and Borderline Personality (BP) especially, don't have an easy boarding since: personality disorders are not considered a mental illness as such; a psychopharmacologic and psychotherapeutic ("integral boarding") treatment is needed, frequently in chronic form;and by the other side, is demostrated a lack of resources and studies at long-term. Also, there are difficulties in clinical practice for the managing patients with BP, especially for their own characteristics (impulsiveness, instability, ...) that, in many occasions, provoke countertransfer phenomena's difficult to control for the professional. This article tries to be a review of the BP and its integral treatment in the different levels welfare but centred on day hospitals. Generally, is in these devices where the most serious cases are treated and where the specific programs are well-established (but for the BP especially yes for the PD in general). Finally to mention that in ambulatory level, in Mental Health Centers, specific groups for PD are realized as a part of its integral treatment in this level.
