The World Health Organization, Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse is currently revising the international classification of disease10 (ICD-10) chapter on mental, behavioral, and neurodevelopmental disorders. This revision aims to improve the clinical utility of the ICD-primary health-care (ICD-PHC) classification system in the primary health-care settings, where the presentation of common mental health conditions vary from that of the specialist centers. The salient changes proposed in the ICD-11 PHC version are the category of anxious depression, health anxiety, and bodily stress syndrome. The ICD-11 PHC field trails have positively supported the proposed changes. The changes in the classification will have to be widely disseminated, complemented with training, and supervision for it to be of use to the people suffering from common mental health conditions in the community.
