What Should the APA Call the Next Edition of the DSM?

The fifth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) is set for publication in May of 2013. I recently received an e-mail from Debbie Arrowsmith, author of The Lumber Room: Mental Illness in the House of Medicine, who writes:
"As you know, the American Psychiatric Association is soliciting comments for the successor to the fourth edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. My comment to them was to rename the thing. The last time the book had any information on statistics was in the second edition of 1968. In 1994, the editors of the fourth edition declared the term "mental disorders" inappropriate."
What do you think? Should the title stay as is or should it simply go by the name Diagnostic Manual. Visit Debbie's blog to cast your vote: What should the APA call the next edition of the DSM?

(4)Sean Patricksays:

The medicalization of metal health into convenient billable categories decided by MDs who have so little contact with the clients they can?t possibly accurately operationalize anything they see, only what they read in their studies years ago, before they replaced their textbooks with pharmaceutical rep literature.

Oh, was that a run on sentence, or just too long of a title?
