What happens in a psychiatric assessment?

You will work closely with a senior psychiatrist who will take the time to understand your current mental state. You will never be pressured or forced to share anything that makes you uncomfortable, but the more insight you can provide, the more accurate and effective the treatment recommendations will be. The discussion might cover:

  • Mental health experiences
  • Feelings and thoughts
  • Physical health symptoms
  • Finances
  • Relationship issues
  • Housing and issues at home
  • Careers and issues at work
  • Gender and sexuality
  • Drugs and alcohol
  • Ambitions and hopes
  • Strengths and skills
  • Cultural and ethnic background

What happens after the assessment?


Receive your report

Once your psychiatrist has all the information they need, they'll make their assessment. We'll then send you a full psychiatric report by email that will include a detailed diagnosis (where one is clear) and any treatment recommendations.


Start treatment

Your psychiatrist may recommend that you see another clinician for further treatment. They might also prescribe medication. We can help arrange this treatment privately or you may wish to be treated by the NHS.


See what's working

If you feel that a treatment or service isn't working for you, let us know. We need to know when things aren't helping, and it could be that another approach or a new assessment is needed to identify a better treatment for you. Your GP might also be able to help you.
