On May 5, 2012, a meeting to publish DSM-5 meets in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USSA.

 From a wildflowers' movement blogpost regarding DSM-5, "The Psychiatrist's Bible":

"Al Galves, executive director of the International Society for Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry, is among them. He wants to see DSM-5 jargon replaced with relevant terms reflecting the stresses of modern life—loss, despair, loneliness, hopelessness—words relating to 'emotional distress, spiritual emergencies, life crises, and difficult dilemmas.'  The question, he says, is 'how do you get the psychiatric establishment and the pharmaceutical industry to revamp totally' so that they move away from the language of the medical model and use ordinary words to facilitate helping people who are suffering."
