This summer volume of APP we would like to start with one of the European Psychiatry leader’s, Prof. Wolfgang Gebel’s editorial on the latest revision of the International Classification of Diseases ICD11. Following approval of the ICD-11 by the World Health Assembly in May 2019, World Health Organization (WHO) member states will transition from the ICD-10 to the ICD-11, with reporting of health statistics based on the new system to begin on January 1, 2022. It will illustrate a set of new categories that have been added to the ICD-11 and present the rationale for their inclusion. This information is intended to be useful for both clinicians and researchers in orienting themselves to the ICD-11 and preparing for implementation in their own professional contexts.
