As a part of our mental health treatment programs, Harmony Bay Wellness offers comprehensive psychiatric evaluations. During a psychiatric assessment, we can observe and diagnose emotional, behavioral, or developmental disorders that you or a loved one may be experiencing.
We offer a calming, bright, and positive tone to our therapy and treatment programs. When you arrive for a psychiatric evaluation, you can feel relaxed in a safe environment with caring professionals.
When Are Psychiatric Evaluations Needed?
The potential need for a psychiatric assessment begins when a family member, friend, or coworkers start noticing issues with a person’s behavior, mental state, or emotional stability. You or a loved one may begin to experience feelings of restlessness, depression, anger, rebellion, or anxiety.
You may also notice other factors such as:
- Tension or a sudden shift relationships
- Poor work habits
- Poor hygiene
- Lack of sleep
- Substance abuse
Some also experience:
- Emotional outbursts or mood swings
- Short attention span
- Violent or emotional outbursts
Keep in mind that nothing has to trigger any of these symptoms particularly. They can occur for no reason at all. Additionally, specific events or environments can make the symptoms even worse.
What Is Involved in A Psychiatric Evaluation?
A psychiatric evaluation starts by identifying the circumstances or causes of the mental health condition. This can include factors such as a person’s individual or family history, substance use, development, medical history, social experiences, or overall mental wellness.
In addition, we may combine a psychiatric evaluation with some of our mental health therapy services, such as:
- Medication assisted treatment
- Individual, family, and couples therapy
- Telehealth treatment services
- Assessments for drug or alcohol abuse
We also offer intensive outpatient programs and medication-assisted treatment programs that we may recommend after performing psychiatric evaluations.
Overcoming the Stigma of Mental Health Issues
Many people avoid psychiatric evaluations due to the stigma associated with mental health issues. While this is understandable, you may discover that your fear or embarrassment isn’t helping you overcome your condition.
Remember that you are not alone in dealing with a mental condition. In fact, many Americans suffer from mental health disorders. The ones who are living happy and healthy lives have learned to address their issue, accept their mental condition, and work towards recovery.
At Harmony Bay Wellness, our focus is to provide a warm and caring environment where you have the freedom to talk about your mental health issues, discuss your fears, and overcome the stigma of your condition.
Through psychiatric evaluations, we can uncover the mystery of mental illness and identify what condition you have. We can then work toward an appropriate and sustainable solution through our therapy treatment programs in South Jersey. We are here to help you heal and to thrive regardless of your condition.
