Abstract

A review of critical issues for mental health management in vocational rehabilitation within the context of the implementation of the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF; WHO, 2001), including: the importance of competency in psychiatric diagnoses for vocational rehabilitation professionals working in mental health management; a review of the release of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5; APA, 2013), highlighting significant changes from the previous version; and the inclusion of the World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule (WHODAS; WHO, 2012), an instrument closely linked to the ICF, within the DSM-5 as a replacement for the Global Assessment of Functioning (GAF) that was in previous versions of the DSM.
