No, a psychiatric diagnosis cannot be verified on an objective level. Only in mind it can be proven and decided weather a psychiatric diagnosis applies or not.A psychiatric diagnosis is based on psychological symptoms also called psycho-pathological phenomena (gr. phainomenon -- that which appears). Psychological symptoms and psycho-pathological phenomena appear in a persons mind.Because psychiatric phenomena are ideal objects an objective prove on a physical level is not possible but only subjectively one can ponder in mind if a psychiatric phenomenon (psycho-pathological phenomenon) is present or not.When specific psychiatric phenomena are recognized a psychiatric diagnosis (diagnosis of a mental disorder) is attained.Since psychiatric diagnoses are based on ideal objectsthe categories of a psychiatric classification (e.g. DSM-IV or ICD-10 classification) have been defined and determined by agreement on an ideal level.Therefore psychiatric diagnoses are subjective knowledge and at the same time relative knowledge referring to concepts determined by agreement.In contrast certain medical diagnoses are objective knowledge.In case of certain medical conditions it can be proven if specific parameters are present or not (e.g. a bone fracture is determined by an X-ray, a myocardial infarction is proven by elevated blood enzymes, typical electrocardiographic findings and so on) and in this way a diagnosis which is objective knowledge can be reached because every body agrees if the specific signs are present. Therefore such knowledge is not dependent on an agreement.With the philosophy of Immanuel Kant out of the "Critique of Pure Reason" the difference of medical diagnoses to psychiatric diagnoses can be explained in detail and although the consequences following thereof.

Medical diagnoses are based on symptoms, signs and the results of various diagnostic procedures. Some of the medical diagnoses (e.g. myocardial infarction, pneumonia, ... ) are based on medical signs, which are "physical" parameters that can be destined objectively. Other medical diagnoses as tension headache, somatoform-pain disorder, fibromyalgia can not be destined objectively but subjectively only, because these diagnoses depend on symptoms only. With psychiatric diagnoses it is the same. Psychiatric diagnoses are based on psychological symptoms, which are also called psycho-pathological phenomena. Because psychiatric diagnoses are based on symptoms (psychopathological phenomena) and not on medical signs (as electrocardiograph's findings, laboratory findings, MRT- pictures e.g. - which can be destined on an objective basis) the diagnosis itself is not objective but only subjective knowledge and valid within a convention (ICD-10 or DSM-IV e.g.)
