Inside the Battle to Define Mental Illness

By now we have probably all heard of the American Psychiatric Association's (APA) effort to revise the DSM-IV to create the DSM-5. 

I came across a very interesting article on the internal battle currently going within the APA regarding this revision process and about the entire DSM system of diagnosing in general.  This is a must read for anyone diagnosing and/or working with patients/clients suffering from mental illness.  It will be very interesting to see how this all plays out in the next few years.
