In brief: Confidentiality

If you are an adult then you can go to a psychologist or other mental health professional for help with borderline personality disorder and your mother never has to know about it.
Just about anything you tell a psychologist is confidential. If you are a minor then you will need your legal guardian's consent to have treatment but you can still share private things with the psychologist.
