Mental Health Assessment

All referrals into the IPRS Health Mental Health Service begin with a Mental Health Assessment to establish to most effective treatment method for the patient. 

How it works?

  • History
  • Development of problems
  • Presenting problems
  • Formulation including maintaining factors and risk.

The therapist will establish a clear working diagnosis and make recommendations based on clinical need and provide education to the patient person to help them to make an informed decision on their treatment.

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:

  • Establish the most appropriate care pathway for the patient
  • 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.
