Mental Health Symptoms and DSM-IV Diagnosis

Mental Health Symptoms and Diagnosis Overview:

Mental health symptoms and diagnostic criteria follow below for virtually every mental health diagnosis recognized by the DSM-IV (Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders). This manual is the diagnostic manual used by mental health clinicians such as psychologists, psychiatrists, professional mental health counselors and licensed clinical social workers. However, it is extremely important to remember that you should never attempt to make a mental health diagnosis for yourself or others unless you are properly trained and licensed to do so.. Many additional factors are considered in addition to the mental health symptoms specified on these pages in making a proper diagnosis, including medical and psychological testing considerations, among others. The information provided on the following pages of mental health symptoms and diagnostic criteria are for information purposes only, and should never replace the judgment and comprehensive assessment of a trained mental health clinician.


Mental Health Symptoms and Diagnostic Criteria:

Disorders Usually First Diagnosed in Infancy, Childhood, or Adolescence

Delirium, Dementia, and Amnestic and Other Cognitive Disorders
