Best Practices in Conducting a Mental Health Assessment
Consider the unique sets of circumstances each client brings to the assessment process.
With an estimated 45.6 million Americans suffering from some form of mental illness as of 2011, there’s an urgent and real need for effective mental health treatment. Within the mental health care system, properly assessing and identifying client needs becomes a pivotal first step within the treatment planning process. The quality of information gathered during the assessment/intake process ultimately determines the types of supports and services a person receives. For these reasons, having a certain degree of skill in conducting mental health assessments is an essential requirement for social workers and mental health technicians. This white paper outlines best practices for conducting effective mental health assessments.
