Before being listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), not only were many mental illnesses uncommon, they weren’t even illnesses. With psychiatry and psychopharmacology guided by the DSM, it’s worth asking, as Dr. Greenberg, a psychotherapist and author of Manufacturing Depression does, just how the manual is compiled: why do disorders appear in it? Why do they disappear?
