You have until April 20.

Publication of the fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) is a hugely anticipated event in the mental health and addiction field. The final document, which has already been 10 years in the making, is expected to be released in 2013. As part of the development process, the preliminary draft revisions to the current diagnostic criteria for psychiatric diagnoses are available for public review and comment. The proposed draft will be available for public comment until April 20 at www.dsm5.org/
