Updated version of the International Classification of Diseases.


ICD-11 is the updated version of the International Classification of Diseases, developed by the World Health Organisation (WHO), and implemented for the use by mental health clinicians in Scotland on 1 November 2022. 

Chapter 6 of the ICD-11 contains the Clinical Descriptions and Diagnostic Requirements (CDDR) of all Mental, Behavioural and Neurodevelopmental Disorders (MBND). 

Scotland hopes the implementation of ICD-11 is an opportunity to improve both mental health data and the diagnostic experience for people who provide and use services. Its introduction is relevant to all mental health service providers and users.
