Authors' objectives: In patients with personality disorder and/or self-harm behaviour, are there any benefits and risks of treatment with General/Good Psychiatric Management as a stand-alone or adjunct treatment, compared with any other intervention or no intervention in terms of mortality, suicide/attempted suicide, self-harm, symptom remission, complications, health care utilisation, disability/functionand patient experience?
Authors' results and conclusions: Based on low certainties of evidence from primarily one RCT, there may be little or no difference between GPM and DBT in suicide attempts, self-harm behaviours, symptom remission, healthrelated quality of life, healthcare utilisation, and disability/function in patients with BPD. Based on low certainty of evidence from one non-RCT, there may be a greater symptom reduction in patients with BPD receiving GPM compared with no treatment (wait list).
