On your journey to recovering your mental health well-being, you will face many processes, methods, assignments, challenges, failures, and successes.
On your journey to recovering your mental health well-being, you will face many processes, methods, assignments, challenges, failures, and successes. But before that, your Behavioral Health Care starts with what mental health professionals call an Assessment.
Assessment is where a Behavioral Health Care Provider conducts several types of measurement to gauge the mental health illness and problem an individual has. Here are the most common assessments your psychologist, psychiatrist, or mental health professional may give:
- The first is the interview. The interview process is like those you’ll experience during a job interview. But the focus will be on your personality, mental health experience, problems, etc.
- The second is standardized and non-standardized mental health tests and questionnaires. Providers of Mental Health in District of Columbia often give out tests and questionnaires that will determine the mental health illness the person is experiencing, how extreme it is, and which symptoms are the most disturbing to the person.
- The third is observation. Experts in Psychiatric and Behavioral Health in Washington, DC, subtly observe your verbal and non-verbal language to determine more about your mental health illness and problems. Their expert eye can decide which actions support your sharing, which need further clarification, and which cues need to be addressed.
