Conflict of interest statement: This work represents my views as an individual rather than any official views of the ICD-11 International Advisory Group on Mental and Behavioral Disorders, of which I am chair, or the DSM-V task force of which I am a member. At the same time, I acknowledge with gratitude the testing of my views in multiple conversations and written exchanges with the dedicated colleagues who are members of both bodies. In addition, I am a member of the Novartis Science Board, but accept no fees for my work.
