Personality disorders

Source: Stakeholder discussions

Valid clinical term, but some people find it derogatory. Lots of stigma associated with it; lots of assumptions that come with the language which are sometimes wrong. Police might describe someone with challenging behaviour as having a personality disorder, but this isn't a clinical diagnosis. [Source: stakeholder discussions]
