Conflict of interest statement: I have been involved in WHO activities with respect to ICD diagnosis and classification since the mid-1960s. I was also on the APA’s child and adolescent psychiatry working party for DSM-IV and on the joint committee between DSM and ICD for harmonization between the two classification systems. Currently, I chair the WHO child and adolescent psychiatry Working Party for ICD-11. I have also recently been appointed by the APA as Member of the Board of Trustees’ DSM-5 Scientific Working Group. However, this essay is written entirely as an individual; accordingly, the views expressed are mine and not those of the Working Party, WHO or the APA: including the views, policies, or other official positions of the APA and World Health Organization or its Advisory Group or any of its Working Parties. Nevertheless, I wish to express my deep gratitude to both the ICD-11 Working Party and to its DSM-V counterpart for the clear thinking, creative ideas and empirical evidence that they provided and which I have used to underpin this essay.
