Diagnostic Assessment

Mental Health assessment is a process of gathering information to assess client needs and functioning in order to determine appropriate service/treatment based on identification of the presenting problem, evaluation of mental status and formulation of a diagnostic impression.   The outcome is to determine the need for care and recommend appropriate services and/or treatment.

Program Objectives:
  • Diagnostic Assessments shall be scheduled within 7-10 working days of the initial contact.
  • Agency Levels of Care, Ohio Scales and SED Protocols shall be utilized as a guide for referrals to appropriate service environments.
  • The Agency will ensure that Master’s level counselors with specialized training in assessments are primary assessors. 
  • Assessments will be conducted upon referral to determine appropriateness for specific program enrollment, e.g., Sex Offender, Filial Play, Homebuilders, etc.
