Diagnosis - Policy and Guidance (Mental and Behavioural Classification Systems, 2013)

28 November 2016

This document outlines the Society’s policy on mental and behavioural disorder classifications systems.

This policy framework has been designed to ensure a consistent, Society-wide approach to diagnosis which will:

  • enable those covered under the scope of the policy to understand what it entails
  • ensure that all Society members apply and maintain the same level of rigorous standards in the use of mental and behavioural classification systems
