Often misunderstood and under-diagnosed, Borderline Personality Disorder is a serious mental illness that leaves those affected struggling to control emotions and maintain healthy relationships. Amy Allison shares the story of the life she achieved as a high-functioning professional while her personal life was in turmoil. Second Opinion: Borderline Personality Disorder airs Saturday, September 2, 2017 at 3 p.m. on WXXI-TV.

Produced by WXXI, in partnership with the University of Rochester Medical Center and West 175 Productions, Second Opinion focuses on health literacy in an engaging, entertaining, and accessible way. A patient story provides the backbone of each episode as host Dr. Peter Salgo leads a panel of medical experts through the twists and turns of one patient's real-life medical mystery.
