Topic Advisory Group for Mental Health
The Mental Health TAG reviews categories in ICD-10 relating to mental health and mental illness. The diseases within the scope of the Mental Health TAG are primarily located in Chapter 5 (Mental and Behavioural Disorders). The TAG also formulates definitions and diagnostic criteria for the relevant categories, and suggests changes to the classification structure.
