World Health Organization: Revision of ICD-10 Mental and Behavioural Disorders
IUPsyS is psychology’s international organization in Official Relations with the WHO and these were renewed in January 2014. In this capacity IUPsyS was appointed to the International Advisory Group (IAG) for the Revision of ICD-10 Mental and Behavioural Disorders in 2006 and Secretary General, Dr Ann Watts, currently represents the Union on the IAG. Psychology’s contributions to the development of ICD-11 remain a key IUPsyS strategic priority. To support this important initiative the IUPsyS has seconded psychologist Dr Geoff Reed to the WHO to serve as Senior Project Officer for the Mental and Behavioural Disorders component of the ICD-10 revision.
