DSM-5 is the new manual suggested by the American Psychiatric Association to be used to diagnose your mental health, your psychological problems, or your emotional issues. Your insurance reimbursements likely will be determined by what codes your therapist, counselor, psychologist or psychiatrist will use on your insurance forms.
What does this new manual actually mean for you as a person who is trying to evòlve your happiness or resolve issues of unhappiness, depression, anxiety or stress?
Dr. Carol Francis provides you a synopsis for you to consider, positive and ponderous and puzzling. This discussion may prove pertinent to your children, insurance reimbursement and the professional assistance with your family's emotional well-being.
