oops. I just noticed there's already a DSM-IV_Codes. Should this just get deleted? Quick glance shows all the data duplicated there.

I'd say no - the reason this article exists is so that there is an alphabetical listing, while DSM-IV_Codes is clearly by disorder type. The usefulness if this differentiation would be more obvious if this article were wikified. richdiesal 4 July 2005 06:29 (UTC)

ok. well i did my best i could with tabulating it, i'm not sure what can be done to improve it further. perhaps split the table into A B C etc subsections?


i cleaned up the article and removed wiki/cleanup templates. if someone disagrees, feel free to make it better. --Timecop 9 July 2005 02:54 (UTC)


awesome new formatting. thanks!


Thanks for all your help keeping this page usable Timecop! --Erik


The links to "#Top" do not work, there is no such anchor. Can I remove them? I did so in the [[DSM-IV Codes|category listing]... I mean, what's the point? Are there such links in other lists in Wikipedia? Skagedal 21:36, 15 November 2005 (UTC)

This is a huge list. Seems to be the anchor is named 'top' while the references send to 'Top'. Perhaps they should be kept, but fixed. If you rewrite the anchors to link to '#top', then the page works properly. I guess I'll just do that now :) --Timecop 01:30, 17 November 2005 (UTC)
Wow, you're the GNAA guy. Allright, that's fine, I guess - sorry Erikpatt for removing links on the other page without asking! (Personally, I use the "Home" key...) /Skagedal 01:53, 18 November 2005 (UTC)


The DSM cautionary statement has been reinserted. Please see the Talk:Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders page for additional information. Erikpatt 01:38, 24 March 2006 (UTC)

These are not DSM-IV-TR codes, they are ICD-9 codes[edit]

Hi,

I've just been having a look at this DSM-IV Codes page, and I think there is some confusion afoot...

These are not DSM codes at all, they are ICD codes -- and the page template is designed so that clicks on any of the external disorder links go to an ICD-9 database being published on a website called icd9data.com, registered to a commercial venture called Alkaline Software, Inc. in Niagra Falls, New York.

Please check the official DSM FAQ for an explanation of the differences and similarities between ICD codes and DSM codes.

In my view, the entire list of codes being presented as DSM codes should be removed; it does not seem to me to be appropriate to be providing a list which is in effect little more than a very extensive set of links to an external commercial website. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by 85.210.27.66 (talkcontribs) 12:07, 3 December 2006 (UTC).

Links Removed[edit]

The codes listed on this page correspond with the DSM-IV TR. The external links, which were added without discussion to this page, have been removed. Please do not further vandalize this page with removal of content. If there is a concern about a code that is incorrect then, akin to every wikipedia page, anyone is encouraged to update and correct the information. An individual recently deleted the entire page rather than complete the steps to remove the controversial links. This is laziness, vandalism, and ineffective. Please voice concerns on the talk page and, if you have updates of information, include them here. If you are concerned about the content of the entire page, please review Wikipedia's policy for removal of pages. -- Erikpatt

Fair use rationale for Image:DSM-IV.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:DSM-IV.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in Wikipedia articles constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 22:53, 2 June 2007 (UTC)

Rationale for this list[edit]

I question having this list. the regular, numbered list is searchable for any term you want. this list is subjective. Acute Stress is under A, why not S? I dont think this helps someone find a diagnosis, and since its OUR assessment of how it should be listed alphabetically, and may not be derived from, say, the index of the DSM, then its a form of original research. im not proposing deletion, im just asking do we really need this? thoughts?(mercurywoodrose)50.193.19.66 (talk) 21:16, 11 October 2013 (UTC)
