Minnesota Community Corrections Association Presents:
DSM-V In Corrections
Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) is the standard classification of mental disorders used by mental health professionals in the United States and contains a listing of diagnostic criteria for every psychiatric disorder recognized by the U.S. healthcare system. In May of 2013 the DSM-V was released marking a major change in the way mental health issues are diagnosed and described. Given the prevalence of mental health issues within corrections and ex-offender populations, it is important that professional staff understand at least the basics of diagnostic criteria as used today.
