Assessment

The treatment process begins with an assessment. You will meet with a mental health professional, who will:

  • ask you questions in an effort to understand your experience.
  • ask for your permission to speak with family and treating professionals.
  • ask for your permission to take a blood sample, so the evaluation can be thorough and as accurate as possible.
The information gathered will be used to help your mental health provider gain a better understanding of your experience of psychosis and how you can best be helped.
