- Can we have a
I am posting a lot of questions and would like to add these tags. I think, as the site grows, these are tags many people would use on google.
In clinical psychology, "illness" and "disorder" are used synonymously in the literature as well as in diagnostic manuals. It would be counterproductive to differentiate the terms here.
Since "mental disorder" and "mental illness" are synonyms, a "personality disorder", which is a class of mental disorders, is a class of mental illnesses. If we introduced "personality disorder" as a separate tag, then we would need to introduce tags for all other classes of mental disorders as well (of which there are around 400 in the DSM), which I think is overkill with the current scarcity of relevant questions.
Since clinical psychology is the field that deals with mental disorders of all kinds, I don't think that a separate tag "mental disorder" is necessary, because no question is possible that deals with the object of research but not the discipline.
In short, I don't see that we need any of the proposed tags, because the existing tags cover the related questions with adequate distinctiveness.
