Does Amber have BPD? (+3 Signs of BPD)

This interesting post will be discussing if Amber has BPD, or Borderline Personality Disorder. The mental illness diagnoses of Amber Heard were used in her ex-husband, Johnny Depp’s defamation trial.

Does Amber have BPD?

Yes, Amber has BPD. According to a clinical psychologist who was hired by Johnny Depp’s lawyers, Amber Heard has Borderline Personality Disorder. The licensed psychologist, Dr. Shannon Curry, conducted this psychological evaluation.

The psychological evaluation was conducted on December 2021 and went on for 12 hours. The results of the psychological evaluation presented two main results: Amber Heard had Borderline Personality Disorder and Histrionic Personality Disorder.

Johnny Depp’s lawyers went to justify that as a result of these diagnoses, Amber Heard displayed a number of aggressive and toxic actions and behaviors, many of which physically hurt her then husband.

The findings were not only confirmed by Dr. Shannon Curry but even the couple’s therapist who went on to confirm many of the symptoms. Some of the examples of BPD-like behavior that Amber Heard allegedly portrayed in her marriage with Depp are covered as follows,

  • Amber Heard initiated many of the fights between her and Depp. She also forced him to stay even if he tried to leave in order to try to deescalate the situation and stop the fight.
  • According to the findings, Heard feared that Depp was going to leave her at any moment and tried to prevent this through over-clinging to him or even through fights. Fear of abandonment is characteristic of BPD relationship cycles.
  • Dr. Shannon Curry also testified that Amber Heard is very insecure about her image and as a result has tried to defame Johnny Depp. This has also been blamed on her Borderline Personality Disorder.

After these findings were publicized, many members of the public have come out in criticism of those who have Borderline Personality Disorder. This has also led many people who have BPD to stop disclosing their illnesses for fear of judgment.

At the same time, it is known that not all of Amber Heard’s actions can be blamed on her Borderline Personality Disorder and her Histrionic Personality Disorder. The actress herself has expressed that the only mental illness she suffers from is PTSD.

Amber Heard’s Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and even her BPD can be blamed on her upbringing in an abusive environment. She also witnessed her mother getting abused many times. These experiences could have permanently scarred her and led to her issues later.
