Redefining Bipolar Disorder: Toward DSM-V

By: Mary L. Pillips, M.D., and Ellen Frank, Ph.D.

Here is a short editorial by Dr. Mary Phillips and Ellen Frank, Ph.D. discussing possible redefining Bipolar Disorder for the upcoming DSM-V.

They ask that Bipolar Disorder DSM-V criteria reflect the multiple dimensions that are commonly affected (anxiety, eating, and substance abuse disorder, medical illness, sleep disruption, and dysfunctional social relations).
