Before your therapist can recommend a suitable treatment program for mental health problems, you must complete a mental wellness consultation. Specialized mental health practice Nurocoach has access to a nationwide network of experienced therapists via telehealth. They use proven tools to assess your condition and determine the most beneficial treatments. Call Nurocoach to schedule a consultation online today.
Before receiving treatment for mental health conditions, the Nurocoach team will ask you to answer a survey to assess your mental health needs. It ensures you receive an accurate profile and is a guide for the most appropriate treatment.
Psychologists and counselors use various tools to gather information about your behavior, thoughts, and emotions to understand your condition better.
Mental wellness consultations employ a range of quizzes, questionnaires, checklists, and other tools. Most are norm-referenced, meaning everyone undergoes the same process, uninfluenced by the person running it. Research indicates that norm-referenced tests accurately identify specific disorders and their characteristics.
Your mental wellness consultation also uses information from other sources, such as your medical records.
Before a mental wellness consultation, your Nurocoach provider selects suitable assessments. It might sound daunting having to complete these questionnaires, especially if you’re emotionally distressed, but it's a great way to reflect on how you are feeling.
The questionnaires aren’t difficult, and there are no trick questions or right or wrong answers. You won’t be judged on what you say on the form, so just respond honestly.
The other central part of your mental wellness consultation is the interview. Your therapist asks you to describe the problems that led you to seek help and any background information that might be useful. For instance, if you suffered a trauma or had difficulties in your childhood. They also ask about your current situation, such as relationships, work, and home environment.
When your mental wellness consultation are complete, your therapist can discuss the next steps. They might recommend a medical checkup or blood work, for example, for a holistic view of your overall health.
