We can offer honest opinions of whether psychological assessment is needed or will be helpful to new patients. It’s important to know that testing can not detect every type of mental illness or answer all clinical questions. For instance, it can not tell us if someone has Bipolar Disorder or is telling the truth, but it can tell us if we’re on the right track or need to think about heading in a different direction.
If psychological testing is needed, the information obtained can be a godsend when trying to make sense of very difficult, complex problems. The Healthy Minds team will select the right test to answer important questions about diagnosis, learning problems, drug and alcohol abuse, etc.
We can also work closely with other providers to make sure our testing reports answer the appropriate questions, are easy to read, and offer useful information and practical recommendations that will make a difference.
