New diagnoses in the classification DSM-5

Classification of Mental Disorders DSM-5 has brought several innovations, including the 14 new diagnoses. Presumably, that will be incorporated into the ICD-11, which was prepared in response to the DSM-5. New diagnoses have better characterize the symptoms and behaviors of people seeking professional help for their symptoms but have not yet been determined diagnostic criteria. Reliability and validity of new diagnoses were confirmed in pre-clinical, clinical and epidemiological studies.
