What to Expect

Mental Health Services for Adults

What's next?

On your first visit, you will meet with a Therapist to complete a Comprehensive Evaluation that assists with diagnosis and treatment planning. This evaluation provides an overall understanding of cognitive, emotional, behavioral, and interpersonal functioning, whether you are experiencing mental health challenges or seeking support for your personal wellness.

The evaluation includes an interactive interview to understand your concerns, strengths, and goals and assessment tools and questionnaires to gather information and screen for specific mental disorders. They may ask questions regarding personal history, symptoms, psychosocial environment, and overall functioning. To understand the context of your mental health concerns and identify underlying factors, they may ask you about your family history, including significant life events, trauma, or loss. They will evaluate mood, thought processes, perception, cognition, and stress. The Care Coordinator may also assess your social support network, occupational functioning, and ability to engage in daily activities.  

All of the information gathered creates a picture of your current mental health. This direct observation helps to determine if you meet the criteria necessary for a mental health diagnosis. Treatment recommendations vary from person to person and may include therapy, medication management, lifestyle changes, or referrals to specialized services or support groups. Based on your evaluation, we will discuss service options and work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan tailored to your mental health needs. These services can help you navigate emotional difficulties, improve relationships, manage stress, cope with trauma, or develop effective coping strategies - whatever level of support you need to support your mental health concerns.
