Assessment and Diagnosis

The psychological assessment (also called a psychiatric assessment)/evaluation gathers information to diagnose any mental disorder that the person may have; it is the first step in treating a diagnosed disorder. The process typically starts with a chief complaint or presenting problem—this is usually what prompts the person to seek help.


A complete psychological assessment should include:

  • History

  • Neurological assessment

  • Physical examination (if applicable)

  • Further follow up
