These evaluations are called “mental health”, “psychological’, or “psychodiagnostic” assessments. They assess a person’s symptoms and ability to cope. The assessment may also include evaluation of personality. The purpose is to provide diagnoses and suggestions for treatment. Assessments are offered to children (6+), adolescents, and adults. The process involves interviews and the completion of scientifically based rating scales.
