I will recommend the use (as a resource) of a DSM-IV-TR. It's worth the investment. I penned an article for Coding Edge on the topic of bridging ICD-9 and DSM-IV. I believe it ran in the Sept. 2007 publication.
By no means am I attempting to be self-promoting, but that may assist you in understanding the differences between mental health vs. surg/med coding.
There should certainly be some specific resources listed in DSM for you as well as those that others on the forum will recommend.
