Why is it important?

Many diagnoses were modified from ICD-10 to ICD-11, especially in the area of children and adolescents, so proving its reliability and utility in Mexico favors its use in the Latin American region.


The preparation of the new ICD-11 guidelines, planing and devoloping the research, and writing this paper was a work of great pleasure. I wish to express my sincere thanks to all co-authors, out standing members of different scientific mental health institutions. I hope yo find this research provoking
