What Is a Biopsychosocial Assessment?
A biopsychosocial assessment is one of the most common assessments conducted with new patients at DiscoveryMD. With this assessment, we get to learn about our patient, arrive at a preliminary diagnosis and then a create an appropriate treatment plan.
Just as its name implies, a biopsychosocial assessment is comprised of three components that effect a person’s overall wellbeing:
- Biology – Physical health, genetic vulnerabilities and drug effects
- Psychological – Coping and social skills, self-esteem and mental health
- Social – Family relationships and peers
