Psychiatric Evalutations

A psychiatric evaluation is a critical first step in diagnosis and creating a treatment plan to help you start feeling better. In addition to treatment, an evaluation can help identify behavioral and developmental disorders in clients of all ages. There are many reasons to receive a psychiatric evaluation, such as:

  • Receiving an accurate diagnosis
  • Identifying an effective treatment
  • Prevention of psychological complications
  • Building better relationships with others

How Psychiatric Evaluations Work

Comprehensive multidisciplinary psychiatric evaluations examine all factors of your life that may affect your behaviors and symptoms. Testing varies and depends on each client’s unique needs. A comprehensive evaluation will include personalized information, such as:   

  • Physical health
  • Genetic factors
  • Family history
  • Home life and environment
  • Social functioning
  • Cognitive skills
  • Emotional elements

Testing is highly varied and dependent upon the client's needs. However, evaluations usually involve thoroughly examining symptoms, completing a comprehensive psychiatric interview, and may even include lab testing.
