This paper challenges the exclusion of patients from epistemic practices in psychiatry
by examining the creation and revision processes of the Diagnostic and Statistical
Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), a document produced by the American Psychiatric
Association that identifies the properties of mental disorders and thereby guides
research, diagnosis, treatment, and various administrative tasks. It argues there are
epistemic – rather than exclusively social/political – reasons for including patients in the
DSM revision process. Individuals with mental disorders are indispensable resources
to enhance psychiatric epistemology, especially in the context of the crisis,
controversy, and uncertainty surrounding mental health research and treatment.
