Psychological testing and assessments are often the first line of defense for mental health conditions. The results of testing and assessments help clinical providers to determine the nature and severity of any mental health condition, while giving insight into what treatment plan options would be the best fit for the individual tested.

The information gathered and being assessed will help the provider to have a comprehensive picture of the individual being evaluated. It is important to remember that not just one certain test or score is the sole focus. It is not just a one size fits all. Every person has their own set of circumstances and needs. Rather a multitude of options can be used to assess an individual. We all have our weaknesses but tests and assessments will also show your strengths. This allows the clinician to evaluate treatment plans that optimize your strengths and give you the greatest advantage over your mental health condition.
