A potentially new diagnostic model for psychiatric disorders…

A combination of 50 psychologists and psychiatrists have outlined a new diagnostic model for mental illness, in what is hoped to be a paradigm shift in how these illnesses are classified and diagnosed. The model, called the Hierarchical Taxonomy of Psychopathology (HiTOP), addresses numerous concerns about the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), which are shared by many psychologists and psychiatrists.
