Mental Health Assessments (All ages)

Mental health or Neurodiversity? Many families contact us at Makewell feeling clear that they (or their child) need an ADHD or Autism assessment. We also know that many neurodivergent people can struggle to manage their mental health as they navigate through life. We acknowledge that everyone goes through tough times and may benefit from emotional support at the right time. This can make all the difference. A mental health assessment with our Psychologist may be the best way for you to start.

If symptoms, like anxiety or depression, start to get in the way of your life, or that of a loved one, it’s important to act. Research shows that getting help early can prevent symptoms from getting worse and make a full recovery more likely. By understanding what may underpin your emotional presentations and naming the problem, you can then explore treatment options and also gain a better understanding of yourself.

What happens in the assessment:

  • For a child: Our psychologist will initially meet with the parent(s)/Carer(s), for an hour. They would also spend approximately one hour talking to the child in a one-to-one session. It may be necessary to have a joint family session.
  • For an adult:  Our psychologist will spend at least one hour talking to you. If needed, she may ask for a second session.

What happens after the assessment:

Following the assessment, you will receive a comprehensive report and recommendations.

Recommendations could include:

  • Self-help strategies.
  • Support groups.
  • A formal ADHD / Autism assessment.
  • Referral to an NHS specialist service.
  • Further therapeutic work with our psychologist
  • Possible medication through our prescribers
