Mental Health Testing for Adults

Emotional and Psychological Testing for Mood, Anxiety, and Interpersonal Difficulties

Clients or their therapists request psychological assessment at the beginning of treatment or when treatment progress has stalled. It is sometimes helpful to determine what kinds of emotional and personality traits are obstacles in improving a client’s mental health, and determine the best treatment modalities for improving overall well-being.

Cognitive Testing

If a client is experiencing difficulty with memory, attention, or learning a primary care physician may refer them to psychological testing. The results of the cognitive tests are used to provide recommendations and available treatment options to you and your family that are geared toward optimizing quality of life across work, home, and community settings.

Urban Wellness offers the option of combining cognitive testing with emotional tests to determine how these factors interact and impact functioning.

Referrals are commonly made for the following:

  • Adult Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD
  • Educational and Career Accommodations
  • Mood, Anxiety, and Interpersonal Issues

Mental Health Testing for Children

Children are often referred to Urban Wellness by parents, teachers, doctors, or therapists for psychological testing. A psychological assessment examines the relationships between your child’s behaviors, academic abilities, cognitive functioning, and emotional functioning. Results of the psychological evaluation are used to indicate the best treatment options available for your child as well as determine if interventions or accommodations are necessary in the school setting.
