DSM-5 Implementation and Support

The www.dsm5.org website has been reorganized to serve as a resource for clinicians, researchers, insurers, and patients.  The site includes information on implementation of the manual, answers frequently asked questions, lists DSM-5 corrections, and provides a mechanism for submitting questions and feedback regarding implementation of the manual. Researchers and clinicians can also provide us with feedback on the usefulness of the online assessment measures of cross-cutting symptoms, disorder severity, personality, and disability. We also provide links to educational webinars about the DSM-5. The site will continue to provide historical information about the development process and overall rationale for changes from DSM-IV.
