Psychiatric Assessments

Process of gathering information about a person within a psychiatric (or mental health) service, with purpose of making a diagnosis. The assessment is usually the first stage of a treatment process, but psychiatric assessments may also be used for various legal issues. The assessment includes social and biographical information, direct observations, and data from specific psychological tests & sentencing issues. It is typically carried out by a Forensic psychiatry professional, but it could be a multi-disciplinary process involving nurses, psychologists, occupational therapists and social workers.

The assessment is usually the first stage of a treatment process, but psychiatric assessments may also be used for various legal issues. Psychological assesment is concerned mainly with empirical research relevant to assessments conducted in the broad field of clinical psychology. Integrative reviews of research in this area are also welcome.
