  • The presence of more than one psychiatric diagnosis occurring in a singe patient at the same time. Although the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), which is used for the classification of mental disorders, presents disorders separately, many people diagnosed with one disorder have a tendency to present with symptoms of other mental disorders. For example, more than 50% of people diagnosed with anxiety are also diagnosed with another mental disorder, often major depression or substance use disorders. Dual diagnosis is the term used to indicate the diagnosis of both a mental disorder and a substance abuse disorder. For more information, see Kendall and Clarkin (1992).
