Join Yahoo! News’ Lizzie O’Leary, Dr. Sally Satel, psychiatrist and fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, and Dr. William Glazer, the president of Glazer Medical Solutions and formerly on the faculty at Yale and Harvard Medical schools, at 12:30 p.m. ET Thursday for a discussion of the controversial fifth edition of the “bible” of mental illness, formally known as the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders.
