Your First Appointment
Your first appointment with a Mental Health Provider will usually be 30 - 45 Minutes Long
After checking in with our Front Desk Staff, you will be given New Patient Forms to fill out. Once completed, you will meet with your Mental Health Provider.
Your provider will:
listen to you talk about your concerns and symptoms
ask questions about your general health
ask about your family history
take your blood pressure and do a basic physical check-up if it's required
ask you to fill out a questionnaire.
There will usually be a lot of questions. The long appointment gives the psychiatrist time to listen to you and hear your whole story.
They might also want to speak with other health professionals or members of your family.
Your psychiatrist may order some more tests to help them understand what is going on.
It might take a few appointments for your psychiatrist to make a full diagnosis, but the next step is to work out a treatment plan.
A treatment plan is a combination of therapies that suit your health needs, personal preferences, family situation and age.
You and your Mental Health Provider will work together to develop a treatment plan that's right for you. The provider might provide the treatment themselves, or they might recommend you see another health professional – for example a Psychiatrist, Therapist, Etc...
After your first visit, the appointments might be shorter. Your Mental Health Provider will focus on checking your progress and adjusting treatments.
