A patient with borderline personality disorder will benefit from any health benefits provided by omega 3 fatty acids just like anyone else.
Omega 3 fatty acids have not been proven to treat borderliness personality disorder but psychotherapy and treatment of any co occurring psychiatric disorders will be helpful.

In brief: It won't hurt
There's no evidence that omega 3 supplements relieve the symptoms of borderline personality disorder.
However, these supplements may have benefits with regard to immune and cardiovascular function. They should be ingested with food to avoid upset stomach.
