Anxiety UK adds its voice to DSM-5 criticism
May 28th, 2013
Anxiety UK, the country’s leading anxiety disorders charity, has added its voice to the growing criticism of the recently published Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, or DSM-5.
The first major update of DSM-5 for twenty years, the manual produced by the American Psychiatric Association is deeply influential globally but has divided opinion and generated fierce criticism from around the world.
Anxiety UK has now weighed in with its own critique of the latest version of the manual saying the changes will cause confusion, chaos and distress.
Nicky Lidbetter, CEO of Anxiety UK, said: “On the one hand DSM-5 expands the range of mental health issues that are classified as disorders while at the same time omitting others such as Asperger’s.
“There doesn’t appear to be any rhyme or reason to the manner in which there decisions have been made, conclusions reached and recommendations given.
“In our view this will lead to confusion, chaos and distress. It’s no surprise that the publication of DSM-5 has been met with such universal astonishment.”
