With the DIPS Open Access: Diagnostic Interview in Mental Disorders the established diagnostic interview is now available in its fifth edition and is now freely available for practice and research. With the help of DIPS Open Access, diagnoses of mental disorders according to DSM-5 and ICD-10 can be made reliably. In addition, important information for the planning and implementation of psychotherapeutic interventions can be determined in a structured manner.

The DIPS Open Access interview guide guides interviewers through the diagnostic interview. Following the interview guidelines, DIPS Open Access offers the possibility of comprehensive documentation of the general anamnesis as well as the social assessment. The protocol sheet, which is also included, enables the clear documentation of the symptoms recorded and a detailed assignment to DSM-5 criteria.
