Purpose: Diagnose and classify mental disorders
The new edition of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) defines and classifies mental disorders in order to improve diagnoses, treatment, and research. It is the product of more than over 10 years of effort by hundreds of international experts in all aspects of mental health.
The criteria are concise and explicit, intended to facilitate an objective assessment of symptom presentations in a variety of clinical settings—inpatient, outpatient, partial hospital, consultation-liaison, clinical, private practice, and primary care.
The DSM-5 is the most comprehensive, current, and critical resource for clinical practice available to today's mental health clinicians and researchers. The information contained in the manual is also valuable to other physicians and health professionals, including psychologists, counsellors, nurses, occupational and rehabilitation therapists, as well as social workers and forensic and legal specialists.
