Psychiatric assessments are a vital component of mental health care, serving as a comprehensive evaluation process to diagnose and formulate treatment plans for anyone experiencing mental health issues. Including both objective evaluations from a psychiatric professional and subjective understanding of the challenges you find yourself facing, an assessment will give a thorough understanding of your unique needs and circumstances, paving the way for effective support, improved well being, and a happier you.

Mental Health & Psychiatric Assessments Made Easy

What kind of symptoms warrant a mental health or psychiatric assessment?

A psychiatric assessment may be warranted if you’re exhibiting symptoms that concern you or make you think you have an underlying mental health condition. These could include persistent feelings of depression, anxiety, or irritability; significant changes in mood, energy levels, or sleeping patterns; difficulty concentrating or making decisions; withdrawal from social activities or relationships; unexplained physical ailments; excessive worry or fear; substance abuse; drastic changes in appetite or weight; and thoughts of self-harm or suicide. You should also seek an assessment if you’re experiencing hallucinations, delusions, or persistently disorganised or unsettled thinking. It is essential that you seek professional help if any of your symptoms persist or start to significantly impact how you go about your day to day life.

What happens in a mental health or psychiatric assessment?

A mental health or psychiatric assessment isn’t a “test” or “exam” that you pass or fail. Instead it’s a conversation with a professional, usually a clinician such as a psychiatrist, who will use the time to conduct an evaluation of your emotional, cognitive, and behavioural functioning. This typically begins with a detailed interview, exploring your concerns, medical and psychiatric history, family background, and social relationships. There may be some standardised questionnaires and psychological tests to gain further insight into your symptoms and experiences. Throughout the assessment, the professional will maintain a supportive and non-judgmental approach, encouraging open communication. Based on the information gathered, the clinician will then formulate a diagnosis and advise on a tailored treatment plan to address your specific needs and help you to live a better, happier life.

Psychiatric disorders encompass a wide range of mental health conditions that can significantly impact your wellbeing. Common types include mood disorders (such as depression or bipolar disorder), anxiety disorders (such as generalised anxiety, panic disorder, or phobias), psychotic disorders (such as schizophrenia), eating disorders (such as anorexia or bulimia), and personality disorders (such as borderline personality disorder).

Mental health and psychiatric treatment & support

Treatments for psychiatric conditions should always be highly tailored and personalised to your individual needs and the specifics of your diagnosis. Psychiatric treatment often involves a combination of psychotherapy (such as cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy, or psychodynamic therapy), medication management (such as antidepressants, antipsychotics, or mood stabilisers), and other support services (such as support groups or ongoing case management). Remember that the goal of the treatment is not to “cure” you - the aim is to alleviate your symptoms and promote your wellbeing so that you can live a happier and more fulfilling life.
