Mobile App for DSM-5 Now Available

The DSM-5 Diagnostic Criteria Mobile App is designed to help mental health practitioners, researchers, and students fully integrate the new DSM criteria and codes into their practice and study. Users have full offline access to all of the criteria sets as well as online access to supporting videos, commentary, and resources. Powerful search and customization tools aid and enhance assessment of symptom presentations in a variety of clinical and administrative settings.

The app features access to the complete DSM-5 diagnostic criteria sets on your phone and tablet, up-to-date access to ICD-9-CM and ICD-10-CM codes for clinical and administrative use, video commentary from the DSM-5 task force members highlighting changes from DSM-IV to DSM-5, streamlined navigation of the classification hierarchy, and robust disorder, acronym, code, and symptom search functionality. Bookmarking allows customization of the criteria sets most commonly referenced for individual practice with easy access to recently viewed content.

The mobile app can be bought through the iTunes store for Apple mobile devices, and through Google Play for Android.
