Example text

The third pillar is named Partnership for Evaluation. In this pillar the person who is being evaluated is seen as a participant in the diagnosis process, and whose values and preferences help determine the clinical recommendations.  Muller contends that the DSM-5 is an invitation to get a psychiatric diagnosis wrong. The problem, he says, is that this approach conceptualizes all mental illnesses as natural disease entities and it assumes that people with the same clinical presentation share the same underlying pathological process.
