Diagnoses are made based on a thorough evaluation of a client’s symptoms, medical and psychiatric history, and current circumstances. This evaluation is conducted using standardized assessment tools, clinical interviews, and observations.
It’s important to note that diagnoses are not static and can change over time as a client’s symptoms and circumstances evolve. Additionally, diagnosis should not define a person, but rather provide a framework for understanding their experiences and guiding treatment decisions.
If you or someone you know is seeking mental health treatment, I encourage you to consult a licensed mental health professional for a comprehensive evaluation and personalized treatment recommendations.
