10. insanity
Insanity is a legal concept, not a medical one.

A psychiatrist could diagnose you as suffering from some sort of disorder. It takes a jury ( or a judge in the case of a non-jury trial) to find you not guilty by reason of insanity, or a judge to determine you too mentally impaired to stand trial in the first place.
