Ask a Psychiatrist and Get Answers to Mental Health Questions ASAP
Hi Alice, My name is Ja`Ree and I am a mental health counselor.
I understand that you have done some research to find the assistance that you need. Have you talked with a psychologist personally about having some testing and evaluations completed to assis you with the help you are seeking?
I would like to assist you with finding the answer to your question, however, I would like to talk with you further to try to determine what would be the best answer for you. There are many psychological tests out there that will assist with finding the best diagnosis and method of treatment, however, it is best to find a psychologist to administer the tests, interpret them, evaluate you and offer you the best method of treatment. If you would like to talk with me about how to go about getting the assistance you need please reply to my message and I will respond as soon as I see your reply. Thank you for contacting Just Answer. JaRee
Would you mind sharing what is going on for you that makes you think you need to have psychological testing?
Depression and anxiety are very difficult to deal with on your own. Did he prescribe any kind of medication to assist you with the symptoms? I would recommend that you find a local mental health agency to have an assessment by a mental health counselor who will be able to determine what treatment recommendations to make and to refer you to the best psychologist to do the evaluation. Have you ever had any mental health treatment?
Would you consider having an assessment done by a local mental health counselor to help you to determine the kind of treatment you might need? Sometimes depression and anxiety can be treated in counseling to find the source of the problem and skills to deal with the symptoms and be able to move forward and develop the happy productive life you deserve. Sometimes it needs medication to assist with the symptoms. I would be glad to assist you with finding an agency in your area to assist you with a counselor and the psychological testing if you would like
