In the journey of personal growth and wholeness, self-awareness is key. That’s where mental health assessments come in. These crucial tools, backed by scientific research, offer insights into individual strengths and weaknesses, helping us better understand ourselves and the unique challenges we face. At Stonebriar Counseling Associates (SCA), we leverage these assessments to provide comprehensive, personalized mental health care.

Mental Health Assessments: What are They?

Mental health assessments are systematic evaluations used to understand an individual’s emotional well-being and mental health. They involve a series of questions or tasks designed to identify symptoms of mental health disorders, personal strengths and weaknesses, and coping mechanisms. These assessments play a crucial role in diagnosing mental health conditions, planning treatment, and measuring progress.

The Value of Understanding Yourself

These assessments offer the opportunity to gain valuable insights into your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. They highlight patterns that may contribute to emotional distress or impede personal growth. By understanding these patterns, you can begin the process of change and development.

For example, assessments can help identify signs of depression and anxiety, helping you understand why you’ve been feeling persistently low or excessively worried. With this knowledge, you and your therapist can develop an effective treatment plan tailored to your specific needs.

Types of Assessments at SCA

At SCA, we offer a wide range of assessments for both adults and children. These include measures for depression and anxiety, screenings for ADHD, ADD and ODD, and the stress profile assessment. We also use the SYMBIS Marital/Premarital Assessment for couples seeking to understand their relationship dynamics better.

Our therapists are trained in administering these assessments and interpreting the results. We work with you to understand the findings and use them to guide your therapy.

The Journey from Assessment to Treatment

After the assessment, our therapists will thoroughly process the results with you in a feedback session. This session helps you understand what the results mean and how they can inform your treatment. Based on the findings, a unique treatment plan will be designed to help you achieve personal growth and manage life’s changes better.

The assessment is just the starting point. As your therapy progresses, the assessments may be repeated to measure your progress and adjust your treatment plan if necessary. They serve as a roadmap, guiding your journey towards better mental health.

SCA’s Ethos in Mental Health Assessments

At SCA, we believe in the innate ability of each person for personal growth and wholeness. Our mental health assessments are geared towards helping you discover and use your own God-given strengths and resources. We approach every assessment with respect and love, regardless of age, sex, race, religion, ethnicity, or socio-economic status.

Your Path to Personal Understanding

Understanding oneself is the first step towards healing and personal growth. Mental health assessments are instrumental in this process. They offer invaluable insights that help guide therapy and inform the steps towards better mental health.
