My book lists....

Personality disorders as -Paranoid, Schizoid, Schizotypal, Narcissistic, Hisrionic, Borderline, Antisocial, OCD, Avoident, and Dependent

mood disorders- major depressive disorder and bipolar

anxiety disorders- generalized anxiety disorder, Panic disorder, phobias,& PTSD

From what I have been taught MOST people with personality disorders are not treated at all and a high percentage are not diagnosed. I am not saying everyone, just most.

A high percentage are homeless and are in prison because of their disorder. I am not saying this to be disrespectful, it is just was I was taught and what is in my book. In my book it does say that most are not treated because they don't believe there is anything wrong with them. Most are forced into therapy either in prison or by family members that notice there is something wrong. But it is hard to treat someone who thinks there is nothing wrong with themselves. I am by no mean an expert, this is just what I was taught in school.
