A mental health assessment is a powerful tool for both you and your counselor. The assessment provides baseline information about issues you may be struggling with and your expectations for therapy. This process will also help your counselor design a therapy strategy that will be most useful for you, and which will address your needs and concerns. If your services are not perfectly suited for you, someone here at Michigan Counseling Centers may refer you to another professional who can help.
Safe and Confidential Service
Your mental health assessment is confidential medical information and will not be shared with any third party. The information is used solely to assess your physical, mental, and emotional state in order to develop an effective psychotherapy plan.

This will give your counselor a better framework to design a therapy plan.
Confused about a question?
If you are not sure about a question or you don’t understand it, simply answer to the best of your ability. Keep in mind that the mental health assessment is designed to provide a picture of your current state, and there are no right or wrong answers.
