Good evening, Dr. May I know if there is any way we can do mental health assessment during movement control order?

Thank you for your question

Are you thinking about seeking the help of a therapist? If certain issues have been causing problems in your life and you aren’t sure how to make the necessary changes, therapy can help. With the help of a professional, you can get out of an unhealthy cognitive, emotional, and behavioral pattern.

Different professionals and agencies provide a range of services, which means your initial assessment may involve one or more professionals. During an assessment, the following points will be considered (where relevant):

  • your mental health symptoms and experiences
  • your feelings, thoughts and actions
  • your physical health and wellbeing
  • your housing and financial circumstances
  • your employment and training needs
  • your social and family relationships
  • your culture and ethnic background
  • your gender and sexuality
  • your use of drugs or alcohol
  • past experiences, especially of similar problems
  • issues relevant to your or others’ safety
  • whether there’s anyone who depends on you, such as a child or elderly relative
  • your strengths and skills, and what helps you best
  • your hopes and aspirations for the future
