Mental Health Assessments and Treatments
For psychiatric disorders, as with all medical illnesses, successful treatment begins with a complete and accurate assessment. At Western Psychiatric, we provide comprehensive evaluations for people of all ages in a number of settings, including a 24-hour emergency room.
Since discussions with family members (with the patient’s consent) are a valued part of the evaluation process, we encourage family members to accompany patients to the assessment.
Based on the assessment, clinicians recommend the program that will be most helpful and tailor a treatment plan to meet the specific needs of the individual.
Treatment is a cooperative effort between the patient, family members, and professional staff and may include:
- Intensive outpatient care
- Routine outpatient care
- Partial hospitalization
- Inpatient care
- Residential treatment
- Individual therapy
- Group therapy
- Family therapy
- A combination of approaches
Because psychiatric disorders can involve many factors, patients may receive care from a team of professionals, often including:
- Social workers
This team provides the patient and the family with education and communication throughout the treatment process to enhance the patient’s recovery.
Western Psychiatric is dedicated to providing high-quality health care that is compassionate, attractive to patients and their support systems, and responsive to referring professionals and agencies.
