No to DSM 5

Responsible department: Department of Health

We wish the government/health boards to refuse to accept the fifth version of psychiatry's diagnostic code (DSM-5: see www.dsm5.org), due for publication by the American Psychiatric Association in 2013, it has already suffered from resignations and accusations of vested interest. Now the British Psychological Society has had its say by publishing a highly critical response to the planned revisions (access the full document at tinyurl.com/67wygp7). DSM 5y has been highly criticised and will cause many problems for those with mental health issues seeking diagnosis and support.
