At Tamarack Health, it is our mission to help you determine the best next step for your specific situation - that process often begins with a Mental Health Evaluation. We'll evaluate you head to toe, psychologically, so that you know exactly what's going on.
What to expect
First and foremost, we're here to listen and assess, not judge. The goal is to get the full picture of the way a person feels, thinks, reasons, and remembers.
A Mental Health Evaluationtypically lasts 30-90 minutes depending on the individual. A licensed, qualified professional assesses the client's cognitive ability and emotional state (incl. information recall, mental reasoning, etc.).
Essentially, a Mental Health Evaluation can help you determine whether a mental disorder is present or not.
Such mental disorders may include (but are not limited to):
Depression and mood disorders
Substance abuse and addictive disorders
Attention Deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Schizophrenia and psychotic disorders
From here, we can provide professional guidance on what the best next step is.
If you have any questions and would like to learn more, simply give us a call today to see if a Mental Health Evaluation is right for you or your loved one.
