What is Psychiatric Evaluation?

In order to diagnose behavioral disorders, memory impairments, and problems with a person's mental process, health professionals  use psychiatric evaluations. A psychiatric assessment could include a psychological test, a physical examination, a medical evaluation, observational data, questionnaires, an interview, a review of school or medical records, and more.  A child, adolescent, or adult is evaluated based on their current behaviors and how they may affect their physical, environmental, social, cognitive, academics, and emotional well-being. Families should seek a professional evaluation if they feel there may be an issue in one of these areas. It is possible to receive treatment for mental health issues and begin a journey of recovery and self-actualization.

Which Psychiatric Condition You Are Suffering From?

Lifecare Wellness can provide emergency psychiatric evaluations for those in desperate need of help.

Emergency Evaluations

When immediate action is required for your safety, an emergency psychiatric examination is requested. A doctor must rule out other medical causes for your symptoms before making an assessment. If no other reasons can be identified, you’ll be referred to a psychiatrist.

Lifecare Wellness Counseling can provide general psychiatric evaluations.

General Psychiatric Evaluations

When there is a reasonable suspicion that you have a mental health disorder, a general psychiatric evaluation is required. Your medical and family history will be examined throughout the assessment.

If you have a loved one who appears to be exhibiting worrying behavior, Lifecare can provide a clinical consultation.

Clinical Consultations

You can ask for a clinical consultation on behalf of a loved one if they are displaying worrying behaviours that point to the need for psychiatric attention.

Who Needs a Psychiatric Evaluation?

The first to recognize that a loved one has a mental health issue are frequently families, spouses, instructors, or friends. This is frequently brought on by emotions, actions, or circumstances that make individuals behave in an uncharacteristically disruptive, rebellious, or depressed manner. Relationship issues with family members or friends may also be a part of this. This might also impact your ability to sleep, eat, or function at work or school. How you express your emotions, your attentiveness, responsiveness, and ability to cope can all be affected. Individuals or families should consider therapy if they experience these issues or symptoms. There is easily accessible help for anyone with mental health issues.
