"There is no definition of mental illness. It’s bullshit"

The  quote is from Allen Frances, lead editor of the fourth edition of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (universally known as the DSM-IV).

And there is a fascinating article here.

Thanks to guest writer Bob Foss in Sigruns blogg (all in Norwegian) for making me aware of this article.
