CLASSIFICTION OF MENTAL DISORDERS


SONNY T. LISAL

Systems of classification for psychiatric diagnoses have several purposes: 1. to distinguish one psychiatric diagnosis from another, so that clinicians can offer the most effective treatment 2. to provide a common language among health care professionals 3. to explore the still unknown causes of many mental disorders

Two most important psychiatric classifications: 1. the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) developed by the American Psychiatric Association in collaboration with other groups of mental health professionals 2. International Classification of Diseases (ICD), developed by the World Health Organization

ICD-10/PPDGJ III

ICD-10 uses alpha-numeric code, 1 alphabet and 2 numbers 3 characters(A00-Z99). For Mental Disorders (F.00-F99) Term Disorder is used for all classification, and not the term disease and illness Disorder is used to describe a cluster of sings & symptoms or behaviors that could be found clinically with distress for most of the cases and could also cause impairment of functioning
