Mental Health Considerations in the Assessment Process  Discussion 1

Assessments that are designed to accurately diagnose the presence of substance use disorders must also consider the client’s mental health in order to develop the most appropriate treatment plan. There are additional assessment tools that provide supplemental information about the client’s mental health and can be added to the main substance abuse assessment.

For this discussion, locate a screening or assessment tool that measures current mental health symptoms that can be added as supplemental information to the primary assessment. Discuss the instrument and provide the following:

  1. Name of instrument.
  2. Why did you choose the instrument?
  3. What information is collected from the client when using this information?
  4. How will this instrument compliment the primary assessment for substance use disorders
