Example text

What Defines a Mental Disorder? While ICD is a classification of diseases (or ``disorders'' in the context of mental illness), there is no explicit agreement on the definition of a mental disorder. Despite the call for a definition [21], no agreement has been forthcoming and this ambiguity creates a fuzzy boundary between disorder and wellness. At the lowest level, a mental disorder is an identifiable and distinct set of signs and symptoms that commonly produce disability, and that the healers in the society claim to be able to ameliorate through various interventions.

Besides the questionable appropriateness of this approach, it is imperative to identify changing psychopathology over the lifespan. This will allow the early detection in childhood of potentially damaging conditions yet to arise in adulthood and might lead to preventive interventions. It would be very valuable to identify if the manifestation of deviant behavior in childhood is a ``forme fruste'' of an adult onset disorder, or if it heralds the development of a different category of illness in adulthood.

E. the common clustering of a set of symptoms and signs in clinical practice with no other organizing principle deemed to be necessary. This approach may, however, not always be valid, since a higher order rule may override apparent similarities or differences. For example, given external characteristics, one may intuitively classify sharks and dolphins as fish, based on the similarities in appearance and the nature of the habitat. Yet, this would obviously be false as a higher order rule dictates that dolphins are mammals and sharks are not.
