reference bookWe hear a great deal about the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, version IV (DSM-IV) and revision DSM-V which is due to be released in May 2013.

In this post, I highlight some of the differences between DSM and ICD and let you know where you can find treatment guidelines for bipolar disorder published in the US and UK, so you can check them out for yourself.
