Getting an Evaluation

In the State of Washington, this evaluation should be performed by a Licensed Mental Health Professional. A mental health evaluation will consider multiple aspects of a person’s life including medical, mental health history, substance use history, and tools to help assess cognitive levels of functioning.

It’s important to remember that mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of because it is a medical problem, just like heart disease or diabetes.   With the help of counseling, peer support and sometimes medication (not always), the vast majority of individuals living with a mental health diagnosis continue to function in their daily lives.  If you want to speak to someone about all treatment options available to you, please contact us directly.
