13.1. Mental Health Assessment and Screening

Choose a mental health or cognitive function disorder. Describe how a patient with this disorder may present to the clinical setting. What might show up in their subjective assessment? Would there be any findings that may be present during the objective assessment?

Use at least six scholarly sources to support your description of how the relationship and/or assessment may be affected.

In 3 or more paragraphs, include 3 or more strategies for screening and assessing for other different disorders than initially discussed. You can include screening tools if available. Discuss any additional subjective or objective findings you would look and discuss how you may need to change your assessment or your approach to best complete your health assessment.
