The American Psychiatric Association (APA) Board of Trustees has approved the final diagnostic criteria for the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders ( DSM-5 ). The trustees' action marks the end of the manual' s comprehensive revision process, which has spanned over a decade and included contributions from more than 1,500 experts in psychiatry, psychology, social work, psychiatric nursing, pediatrics, neurology, and other related fields from 39 countries. These final criteria will be available when DSM-5 is completed and published in spring 2013.

The Board of Trustees approval of the criteria is a vote of confidence for DSM-5 ,? said Dilip Jeste, MD, president of APA. We developed DSM-5 by utilizing the best experts in the field and extensive reviews of the scientific literature and original research, and we have produced a manual that best represents the current science and will be useful to clinicians and the patients they serve.?

DSM-5 is the guidebook used by clinicians and researchers to diagnose and classify mental disorders. Now that the criteria have been approved, review of the criteria and text describing the disorders will continue to undergo final editing and then publication by American Psychiatric Publishing.

The manual will include approximately the same number of disorders that were included in DSM-IV . This goes against the trend from other areas of medicine that increase the number of diagnoses annually.

We have sought to be conservative in our approach to revising DSM-5 . Our work has been aimed at more accurately defining mental disorders that have a real impact on people' s lives, not expanding the scope of psychiatry,? said David J. Kupfer, MD, chair of the DSM-5 Task Force. I' m thrilled to have the Board of Trustees' support for the revisions and for us to move forward toward the publication.?
