The first step in receiving treatment for a mental illness is to find a doctor who can fully evaluate and diagnose you. Often, mental health can be overlooked as an important part of our overall health and well being. But if you can’t be emotionally healthy, it can affect your life, work, and relationships, and even lead to physical illness.
At Custom Recovery, Dr. Regina Y. Leverrier strives to create a completely individualized treatment plan to help you take care of yourself and take control of your mental health. The first step in this treatment plan is a mental health evaluation by a board certified psychiatrist. The initial evaluation takes 60-90 minutes, and includes discussing a full range of patient information. Biographical information and health history are two important components to understanding the current state of your mental health and moving forward with treatment. In addition, it’s important to rule out any other potential medical illnesses that may be manifesting symptoms. Your initial mental health evaluation by a psychiatrist is extremely important in making sure you receive the right diagnosis, and therefore, the correct treatment.
The term psychiatric evaluation may be a little overwhelming for people who are seeking mental health therapy for the first time. It’s important to know that it is a simple step in taking control of your mental and emotional well being. Once you are diagnosed, Dr. Leverrier can move forward with your treatment or treatments, depending on your needs.
During your initial evaluation, your entire history will be reviewed, and then a treatment plan unique to your needs can be created. At Custom Recovery, we will devise a recovery plan especially for you and involve you in your care decisions at all times. If necessary, you may be referred to additional treatment providers such as acupuncturists, addiction counselors, or naturopaths depending on your needs. Dr. Leverrier believes in a complete approach to mental health and wellness, even if that means involving other practitioners in your treatment.
