Mental Health Assessments
Mental health assessment is a clinical evaluation provided by an eligible individual. It is a process of gathering information to assess client needs and functioning in order to determine appropriate service/treatment based on identification of the presenting problem, evaluation of mental status, and formulation of a diagnostic impression. The outcome of mental health assessment is to determine the need for care, and recommend appropriate services/treatment and/or the need for further assessment.
Medication Management covers medical interventions that include assessments, prescriptions, supervision or administration of mental-health related medications, monitoring and interpreting results of laboratory diagnostic procedures that are related to psychotropic medications. Services include monitoring the side effects and interactions of medication and the adverse reactions which a consumer may experience and providing education and direction for symptom and medication self-management.
