What's A Mental Disorder? Even Experts Can't Agree (5 minutes, NPR) (Courtesy of Erica Noles)

This All Things Considered newscast features commentary on the DSM- 5 updates, and the potential over-diagnosing of Asperger's and Bipolar. "Once you put a new diagnosis in the DSM, there is no controlling what will happen to it. So there's only one thing to do: "Anticipate the worst. If something can be misused, it will be misused," Frances says. "If diagnosis can lead to overdiagnosis and overtreatment, that will happen. So you need to be very, very cautious in making changes that may open the door for a flood of fad diagnoses."As far as Frances is concerned, the new DSM is proposing too many diagnoses that are written in too broad a way, meaning that ultimately a huge number of new people will be categorized as mentally ill."
