Home | APA DSM-5 To the DSM-5 User Community: When the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) was released at the American Psychiatric Association’s Annual Meeting in May 2013, it marked the end of more than a decade’s journey in revising the criteria for the diagnosis and classification of mental disorders. Although DSM-5 is now complete, a great deal of work remains, and we are hopeful that once again you will play an active role in this next important phase of refining the manual. Our highest priority is ensuring the proper use of DSM-5, including providing training materials; answering questions about its implementation in clinical care and research; clarifying concerns about the new ICD codes and insurance billing; and correcting any errors. Information about DSM-5’s developmental history, including Task Force and Work Group membership and relevant resource documents, will also continue to be maintained here.
