Psychiatric evaluations are assessments conducted by mental health professionals to identify any mental health or behavioral issues that may be impacting a patient’s well-being, development, and functioning.
The following steps are generally involved in the process of a psychiatric evaluation at PM Kidz Plus.
During a psychiatric evaluation at PM Kidz Plus, the mental health provider will conduct interviews with the child and their caregivers, observe the child's behavior, and administer standardized tests and questionnaires. The goal of the evaluation is to determine whether the child is experiencing any symptoms of a mental health disorder, such as depression, anxiety, or ADHD, and to develop a treatment plan that addresses the child's needs. It is important to note that these evaluations are not intended to diagnose or label a child, but rather to provide guidance and support for the child and their family.
