Mental Illness and Society

A session at FtBConscience 2

Sunday 2nd February, 2014

11:00am to 12:00pm

Last year, a new version of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders was released. Disorders were added and removed for several reasons, but one of those reasons receives very little attention. Too little attention. Join us as we talk about what it means for a person to be able to function in society and what implications that has for what is and what is not classed as a mental disorder.
