NEUROSIS

is a collection of functional mental disorders which involve symptoms such as distress but neither delusions nor hallucinations, whereby behaviour is not outside socially acceptable norms. It is worth noting that most conditions which used to be classed as neuroses are mostly now classed as anxiety disorders in the DSM (Diagnostic Statistical Manual).

NEUROSIS: "Neurosis according to the DSM (Diagnostic Statistical Manual) no longer exists, instead symptoms which would have led to a successful neurosis diagnosis now point to an anxiety disorder."
