As the name implies, Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD) -- since 1994 called Dissociative Identity Disorder -- is a mental condition in which two or more personalities appear to inhabit a single body.

Many MPD specialists consider MPD is the same class as "schizophrenia, depression, and anxiety, as one of the four major mental health problems today." 1 Although it is diagnosed almost entirely among women, therapists speculate that it may be equally common among men. However, men tend to be less likely to seek treatment. They often end up in jail because of behaviors induced by MPD. Research shows that the average person who is just diagnosed with MPD has spent seven years in the mental health system, and has usually been previously misdiagnosed with other many disorders.
