Psychiatric evaluation is a process through which a mental health professional evaluates a patient's psychological, emotional, and behavioral well-being through open dialogue and the use of inventories, assessments, and tests. The face-to-face interview helps to gain a rich understanding of emotions, behaviors, thoughts, coping strategies for dealing with life’s challenges, and personal strengths. This comprehensive picture helps the clinician determine a diagnosis and suggest a course of treatment.
Individual therapy is a process through which the patient works with the clinician one-on-one in a safe, caring, and confidential environment—to explore their feelings, beliefs, or behaviors, work through challenging or influential memories, identify aspects of their lives that they would like to change, better understand themselves and others, set personal goals, and work toward desired change.
