Re-thinking Classification of Mental Disorders

The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) has recently launched an initiative that could revolutionize how disorders are diagnosed and treated based on neuroscience and genetics. The Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) project has conferences planned this spring to further discuss plans in an “open source process” format, with major components to be implemented within the next 2 years and longer-term components within 5-10 years. head_and_brain

For more information on this exciting initiative, read the NIMH Director’s Blog entry and a report from Nature Genetics.

The Library has the current manual for diagnostic classification of mental disorders, the DSM-IV-TR. Many more titles on diagnostic classification topics are searchable via the GIL catalog.
