From Psychology Today blogger Christopher Lane: “Just two weeks before DSM-5 is due to appear, the National Institute of Mental Health, the world’s largest mental health research institute, has announced that it is withdrawing support for the manual. In a humiliating blow to the American Psychiatric Association, Thomas R. Insel, M.D., Director of the NIMH, made clear the agency would no longer fund research projects that rely exclusively on DSM criteria.”
