Why choose a mental health assessment?
A mental health evaluation can provide useful information and insights into behavioral problems, emotional issues, and cognitive difficulties.
We strive to provide helpful information based on the assessment findings and outline treatment recommendations that are tailored to your specific needs.
Three types of mental health assessments
At Mile High Psychology, we offer three distinct types of mental health evaluations:
Psychological testing is conducted when there is concern that mental health issues significantly affect performance in various areas of life.
Common reasons for referral include mood swings, impulsive behavior, and adjustment problems.
Possible contributing factors may include Depression or Bipolar, Post-Traumatic Stress, and other life stressors.
Neuropsychological assessments are helpful when cognitive problems interfere with daily life.
Common reasons for referral include memory problems, attention problems, and more.
Possible contributing factors may include the onset of dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Stroke, and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI).
Forensic psychology is a specialized field that lies at the intersection of psychology and the legal system.
At Mile High Psychology, we provide comprehensive mental health assessments for individuals involved in legal proceedings.
Our specialized assessments address mental health considerations relevant to specific legal issues.
