A Conceptual Approach to DSM-V Revisions--Implications for Mood Disorders

  • Darrel Regier, M.D., M.P.H., Director, Division of Research, American Psychiatric Association; Executive Director, American Psychiatric Institute for Research and Education (APIRE)
  • John Greden, M.D., Rachel Upjohn Professor of Psychiatry and Clinical Neurosciences; Executive Director, U-M Depression Center;
    Research Professor, Molecular and Behavioral Neuroscience Institute

Many criticisms have been made about the DSM-IV since its release in 1999.  With the DSM-V estimating publication in 2012, the APA and APIRE have been working to address those issues and developing a different approach to its structure in order to encourage research and improve clinical utility. The Executive Director of the U-M Depression Center John Greden, M.D., opens the colloquium with reviewing some of these criticisms, what would be ideal from the future DSM-V, and opens the floor for Darrel Regier to discuss how those issues will be addressed. APA’s Division of Research and APIRE director Darrel Regier, M.D., discussed what new developments would be present in the DSM-V, including adding empirical findings from different areas of research (e.g. developmental and neuropsychology), providing for cross-cultural, gender, and age factors in mental health and illness, and a restructuring of the diagnoses based upon etiology instead of symptom similarity.

Healthy Lifestyles to Combat Depression

  • Ronald M. Davis, M.D., President, American Medical Association, Director, Center for Health Promotion & Disease Prevention, Henry Ford Health System
  • Richard Dopp, M.D., Clinical Lecturer in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, U-M Medical School

Can making healthy day-to-day life choices help with Depression? Former American Medical Association President Ronald M. Davis, M.D. outlines current high-risk lifestyles like the use of alcohol and tobacco, obesity due to food culture, and general lack of physical activity in America. Dr. Davis also explains how the American Medical Association hopes to address these high-risk activities. Richard Dopp, M.D. from the University of Michigan Medical School then shares his research on correlations between healthy lifestyle attributes like physical activity and sleep, and depression in adolescents and adults. The conclusion of Dr. Dopp’s research is that physical activity and sleep likely help to reduce the symptoms of depression. Healthier lifestyles may combat depression.
