Why do we conduct a Mental Health Assessment?

To establish the most clinically appropriate pathway the first step is to complete a full mental health assessment. This will:

  • Offer immediate care and support to the patient
  • The assessment acts as a reassurance for the patient and provides them with the knowledge that there is support and assistance available.

Clinically Audited

Our mental health service is fully audited to ensure consistent clinical excellence. All therapists in our network are subject to our stringent audit cycle and every report submitted to IPRS Health is subject to audit to ensure clinical effectiveness and appropriateness.
