American Psychiatric Association (APA) Practice Guidelines provide recommendations to help psychiatrists make treatment decisions that are supported by the best available evidence, including from current research and expert consensus. The guidelines are developed by expert work groups, who review available evidence using an explicit methodology. Iterative drafts undergo wide review by other experts, allied organizations, and the APA membership. Every guideline is also reviewed and approved for publication by the APA Assembly and Board of Trustees. This process balances the conclusions of scientific research with the practical experience of professionals working in the field. The thirteen "Practice Guidelines" are Psychiatric Evaluation of Adults, Second Edition Delirium Alzheimer's Disease and Other Dementias of Late Life HIV/AIDS Substance Use Disorders, Second Edition Schizophrenia, Second Edition Major Depressive Disorder, Second Edition Bipolar Disorder, Second Edition Panic Disorder Acute Stress Disorder and Posttraumatic Stress Disorder Eating Disorders, Third Edition Borderline Personality Disorder Suicidal Behaviors
