The new edition of Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5®) is the product of more than 10 years of effort by hundreds of international experts in all aspects of mental health. Their dedication and hard work have yielded an authoritative volume that defines and classifies mental disorders in order to improve diagnoses, treatment, and research.

Used by clinicians and researchers to diagnose and classify mental disorders, 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.

New features and enhancements make DSM-5® easier to use across all settings. Learn more about some of the new organization and features of the DSM-5 and the diagnostic differences between DSM-IV-TR and DSM-5 below.
