Default How does a mental health evaluation work? – 01-12-2009, 01:21 AM

I think I might have mild-moderate depression, and there is someone at the college where I go who does mental health evaluations, and then I guess decides whether they’re going to refer you to someone. I’m just wondering how this works, its doesn’t sound like a therapy session kind of thing, it sounds like a get to the point kind of thing, what do I need to prepared to answer and say? Thank you.

An evaluation for depression will include asking you questions about your life now and administering a test, probably BDI (Beck’s Depression Inventory).You spend maybe 15 or 20 mins answering the questionnaire and the person evaluating you will go over your score with you and what it means.If you’re moderately or severelydepressed, you’ll be referred to a licensed psychologist (or a student near graduation working under an experienced supervisor) and told to talk to your doctor about antidepressants.good luck, kiddo.

these are not to much of a big thingeven thou people and movies do make them out to beit not a therapy session but a finding out your symptoms and feelingsyour living conditions and family depression history(if any) ectyou may need to fill out questionares and /or answer question in conversation but answer them truthfully or you may end up on a drug you dont need and there help may make things worseif ya worryied contact the person listed on the appointment letter/notifcation and ask what you are to expect and what you need to prepare and explain you feel worryied about the up and coming appointment

The mental health rehabilitation provides your patient with a professional service on how to deal with whatever problems they may be facing. With licensed practitioners on staff, you can be sure that your family member is in good hands and will receive treatments specific to their illness by trained medical professionals.perennial flowers
