The ICD-11 is Here!

On May 25, 2019, member states of the World Health Assembly agreed to adopt the 11th revision of the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems to come into effect January 1, 2022. The work of the Global Clinical Practice Network was essential to developing the Chapter on Mental and Behavioral Disorders, and we are grateful for the support of all members of the network in participating in research and commenting on the draft guidelines.

In Fall 2019, the World Health Organization Collaborating Centre for Global Mental Health at Columbia University will be launching Global Mental Health Academy, an online platform to support ongoing training of mental health practitioners. The first course on Global Mental Health Academy will be a training in updates reflected in the ICD-11 guidelines.
