While the DSM and the related ICD system may be a flawed classification system — subject to biases and lacking empirical proof — it is likely to be better than anything else currently available.
While these systems are often elegantly expressed in textbooks, none has succeeded in being robust enough to withstand real-world conditions. As Prof Frances puts it in an essay on the topic called Psychiatric Diagnosis: Nevertheless, this is our best current way of defining and communicating about mental disorders.
It does its job reasonably well when it is applied properly and when its limitations are understood.
One must strike a proper balance. But what happens when it comes to research? If you were running a large randomised controlled trial on hundreds of people with schizophrenia you would need some sort of pre-determined criteria of what constitutes schizophrenia.
It would be unfeasible to carry out a full psychological assessment of every individual in that trial. It is also easy to forget how open to doubt psychiatric diagnoses were in the past.
In a landmark paper by David Rosenhan On Being Sane in Insane Places , eight people with no history of mental illness feigned symptoms in order to gain admission to mental health facilities. As soon as they did gain entry they then stopped feigning any symptoms, yet none of the staff noticed any change in their behaviour.
Embarrassingly enough, many other patients did suspect that these people were "not crazy". Another study from found that psychiatrists were unable to come to a shared diagnostic conclusion when studying the same patients on videotape. Therefore any improvement in the diagnostic framework for mental health, however imprecise it may be, should never be taken for granted. Our knowledge about the human mind is dwarfed by our understanding of the rest of the body.
We have tools that can confirm a diagnosis of a sprained ankle or a damaged lung with pinpoint accuracy. No such tools currently exist to accurately diagnose a "damaged" mind. It could be that our current models of human psychology could be as flawed as the "four humours" model of medieval medicine.
Criticisms of the DSM-5, such as the issue of medicalising mental wellbeing, are legitimate areas of debate. This debate is to be welcomed if doctors are to appreciate the scale of the challenges of better diagnosing, treating and caring for people with mental health conditions.

Psychiatric Diagnosis: October Skip to main content. News analysis: In defence of the DSM-5 Conclusion. There are two main interrelated criticisms of DSM Pharmaceutical influence on mental health diagnoses Healthcare in the US is big business. These changes included: Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder Disruptive mood dysregulation disorder DMDD is defined by DSM-5 as severe and recurrent temper outbursts three or more times a week that are grossly out of proportion in intensity or duration in children up to the age of Generalised anxiety disorder The "diagnostic threshold" for generalised anxiety disorder GAD was lowered in the new version of the manual.
Major depressive disorder The most scathing criticism of DSM-5 has been reserved for changes to what constitutes major depressive disorder MDD. Other attempts to classify mental health conditions, have included: Conclusion Our knowledge about the human mind is dwarfed by our understanding of the rest of the body. These challenges are likely to persist in the decades to come.
