Video Description

"Mood is defined as the prolonged emotions that color a person’s perceptions of the world. Within this category of mood disorders are two groups of disorders, separated into distinct chapters in the fifth edition of the DSM-5 - depressive disorders and bipolar and related disorders. The chapter on Bipolar and Related Disorders in DSM-5 contains several distinct disorders, each given its own diagnostic code. All DSM-5 codes crosswalk to the corresponding codes used by the ICD. In DSM-5, each disorder is first linked to the coding system from the ICD-9, with the codes for the ICD-10 listed in parentheses after. This video systematically explains each relevant code in ICD-9, ICD-10, and DSM-5, along with the diagnostic criteria for each.


"Sometimes I feel in depression, but my friends and my family member's supports me to fight against my BD."
