Mental Disorder Assessments

Also known as 'Psychiatric assessments' or mental health assessments. This is not simply a checklist. Depending on the intensity of the assessment required, a doctor may consider all these points at interview. It could be a tough exercise to gather all this information in one hour from an interview. To approach this in too pressured a way may lead to a break down of communication or the relationship during an interview. Patients always have a need to feel supported and not made to feel as if they are under interrogation.
