Comprehensive Psychiatric Assessment

A careful diagnosis can start your path to recovery.

Diagnosing patients through professional psychiatric assessment

Mental health is a complex subject to maneuver through on your own. People tend to incorrectly self-diagnose their mental illness without really understanding which psychiatric disorder they’re suffering from, which can be harmful in the long run.

Compassion provides assessment, diagnosis, and ongoing treatment for a range of mental health conditions such as:

  • Anxiety
  • Poor Self-esteem
  • Depression
  • Substance abuse
  • Eating Disorders
  • Martial conflicts
  • Bullying
  • Cognitive disorders
  • Thought disorders
  • Manic depressive disorders

A proper diagnosis is vital to your well-being so we can determine the best treatment option for you to start recovering sooner.

What to Expect

The point of a comprehensive psychiatric evaluation is to diagnose or evaluate a patient with one or multiple psychiatric disorders, so our doctors can create a specialized plan of treatment to alleviate harmful symptoms and improve their quality of life.

A comprehensive psychiatric evaluation includes:

  • A thorough description of present symptoms and behaviors
  • Effects of behaviors or symptoms on:
    – Work performance
    – School performance
    – Interpersonal relationships and interactions
  • Personal and family history, especially psychiatric and developmental disorders
  • Substance abuse history
  • Complete medical history
  • Laboratory studies, including blood tests and special assessments
What to Expect

Evaluation by a psychiatrist or mental health professional is appropriate for any child or adult who struggles or suspects they may suffer from a mental health condition.
