    The uk does not use DSM. It's the American classification since they don't use ICD.

    ICD is what we use and it's classification for all diseases not just mental health.

    Most psychiatrists aren't bothered with the labels or diagnosis but treat the problems. Personally I couldn't care less if a patient falls into the autism spectrum or not. I want to know what their problem is and how it affects them.

    ICD and DSM are more for academic interest than clinical use.
