*DSM is the acronym used to identify the Bible of Psychiatrists and Insurance companies, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders. It is a dictionary of terms to define, organize and label disorders. However, it stops at naming symptoms that are not the causes of mental disturbances.
