does anyone know if a minor is able to get a diagnosis without their parents knowing?

      @marley121 very rarely will you get diagnosed with BPD as a minor due to the fact that the symptoms can also just be due to the particular circumstances surrounding being a mentally ill teen. Often, people will meet diagnosis criteria as a teen but not as an adult. It's really not safe to assume BPD as a minor unless it's been brought up by your practitioner. I would suggest focusing on managing the symptoms you have rather than a diagnosis at this time.

      What kind of diagnosis is it? And you most likely wouldn’t be able to without a signature from a guardian. It depends if you’re just going into urgent care yourself or something. But usually things require a guardian signature and it can be costly if you don’t use insurance and I’m sure you don’t have your own workout being dependent on your parents
