NEWS: After five years of no changes ICD has been updated by the addition of about 220 diagnostic labels from DSM-5. The version now available includes all of these and so is now 14 pages. If you bought the 12 page version, The CliniciansToolbox website has a free 3 page download of just the new terms.

The Reference List still has ALL the codes (numbers) and diagnostic labels for ALL the ICD-10 disorders in the mental health area. Also all the codes in the DSM-5 are here as well because they are are actually a subset of those in the ICD-10 (although the names/diagnoses may sometimes differ).

This List includes all the familiar symptom-based codes (now called F-codes) as well as all the relevant codes from the sections G, N, T, and the greatly expanded Z-codes. We need all of these to formulate a comprehensive biopsychosocial diagnosis. You can learn much more about ICD-10 at TheCliniciansToolbox website.

In the ICD-10 each code number can have several diagnoses which has some real advantages. For example, a child can be diagnosed with a accurate label but one which does not apply to adults and so be outgrown and not be permanent as some diagnoses are.

I, Ed Zuckerman, am a seasoned clinician, and have used my experience to edit the official listing. I have removed archaic and unused diagnoses and otherwise cleaned up this listing.

The ICD-10 is essentially in the public domain.) You can get the same information from the CDC website but I calculate it will take you almost 8 hours and cost you (mainly in time) over $350 to make a usable listing. Let me do the work and save you $300. My version uses color, layout, fonts, and highlighting to make finding the right code and diagnosis much easier. There are other similar listings from Rapid Coder and others but they are not designed for clinicians. One presents the codes alphabetically making finding the diagnosis when all you received is the number virtually impossible. Another fits the codes in by leaving out 300 less popular codes. And they cost more. You can find more on these issues at my website. Let us all work together.
