Mental Health Assessments
Every Journey Toward Healing and Wellbeing Begins with an Assessment
Assessments are offered at every DiscoveryMD location. The type of assessment you receive will depend on the challenges and goals you share with us during your initial consultation. A specially trained, licensed mental health expert will conduct your assessment and then develop a treatment plan that’s designed to specifically for you to help you overcome mental health struggles.
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
