The much anticipated fifth revision of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) was finally published by the American Psychiatric Association in May 2013 following a long process of development and significant controversy over draft versions. During the development and subsequent release of the DSM-5, the APS prepared a number of resources to assist members to consider the strengths and limitations of the DSM classification system, as well as to understand the revisions in the new DSM-5.
