The first major attempts to categorize psychiatric disorders in the United States occurred in the mid-1800s, when census data were collected that included "insanity" and "idiocy" of household members. In Europe, Florence Nightingale promoted the use of non-fatal disease classification for morbidity and treatment in 1860. By the late 1800s, Kraepelin categorized disorders, and his sixth edition of the Compendium der Psychiatrie was widely adopted by both Europeans and Americans. In 1952, the American Psychiatric Association published the first edition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). Since then, the manual has been periodically updated, expanded, and edited to reflect social and scientific beliefs about the etiology and categorization of psychiatric illness and care. In this article, we explore the historical and ongoing development of the DSM and its implications for psychiatric nurses.
