After months of delay, the American Psychiatric Association released proposed diagnostic criteria for the Fifth Edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V). A period of public review and comment begins today and ends April 20th. Readers may register and post comments to the dsm5 site through that date. It is especially important that mental health clinicians who work with transitioning clients are heard in this process.
The publication date for the DSM-5 is now scheduled for May, 2013.
The proposed list of gender related diagnoses in the DSM-V are after the jump.
