Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition™

American Psychiatric Association


    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.

    Concise and explicit, the criteria are intended to enable an objective assessment of symptom presentations in a variety of clinical settings—inpatient, outpatient, partial hospital, consultation-liaison, clinical, private practice, and primary care. New features and enhancements make DSM-5 easier to use across all settings.

    The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition™, is a comprehensive and current resource for clinical practice ideal for mental health clinicians and researchers of all orientations. The information contained in the manual can also be used by other physicians and health professionals, including psychologists, counselors, nurses, occupational and rehabilitation therapists, as well as social workers and forensic and legal specialists.
