Psychiatric Diagnostic Evaluation

A comprehensive psychiatric evaluation is needed to diagnose emotional, behavioral or developmental disorders

We, at the American center for neuropsychiatry strongly believe that a thorough Psychiatric diagnostic evaluation is crucial in developing a successful treatment plan by our expert physician.Our diagnostic evaluation is based upon Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of mental disorders, fifth edition (DSM-5) published by the American Psychiatric Association.

An evaluation of an adult, adolescent or child is made based on behaviors present and in relation to physical, social , environmental, genetic, cognitive, emotional and educational components that may be affected as a result of these behaviors.

Who needs a psychiatric diagnostic evaluation ?

Many times, families, spouses, friends or teachers are the first to suspect that their loved one is challenged by feelings or behaviors that cause him or her to act sad, disruptive or rebellious. This may include problems with relationships,work , school, sleep, appetite, substance abuse, emotional expression, attention, coping skills and responsiveness. It is very important for families who suspect a problem in any of these areas to seek treatment as soon as possible.

What is involved in a diagnostic psychiatric evaluation?

A diagnostic psychiatric evaluation may include the following, but each evaluation is different, as each person's symptoms and behaviors are different

  • Description of behaviors
  • Description of symptoms
  • Effects of behaviors or symptoms related to
    1. work performance
    2. school performance
    3. relationships
    4. family involvement
    5. activity involvement

    8. mental status examination.
    9. lab tests
    10. brain imaging studies like MRI scan,CT scan,PET scan or SPECT scan to look for abnormalities in brain structures or metabolism

Once a psychiatric diagnosis is made, family involvement and active participation in treatment is very important for any person with a psychiatric illness. The psychiatrist will address questions and work with you to establish long-term and short-term treatment goals for your loved one.
