According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), nearly one in five U.S. adults live with a mental illness. For some, symptoms may be mild or moderate and easily overlooked, but for many others, symptoms may be more severe and concerning as they begin to interfere with daily life. Through our evaluation process, we assess cognitive functioning (testing memory, attention, executive functioning, and more) for signs of mood and personality disorders, learning disabilities, and other mental health conditions.
What is a psychological assessment?
- Psychological testing or assessments often include various evaluation components, including:
- A review of your patient’s medical and other records,
- An interview with your patient and/or another person who knows them well (such as an adult family member, close friend, or caregiver),
- Administration of a battery of “norm-referenced” tests that measure their abilities and mood,
- Administration of self-report surveys and questionnaires.
Through the different measuring components of the psychological assessment and standards set forth by the DSM-5, the mental health professionals of NSG assess for mental health disorders, such as mood disorders and anxiety disorders, and other cognitive conditions including learning disabilities and ADHD.
