Mental Health Q & A

What mental health services are available?

The team at PA Treatment Center offers several services to address your mental health. They provide comprehensive psychiatric evaluations for both adolescents and adults to identify disorders like:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Mood disorders
  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

You can also receive treatment for an addiction to drugs and alcohol if substance abuse is contributing to your mental health issues or if you’re self-medicating to better cope with psychiatric conditions.

The providers offer expert mental health care during in-person office visits and through the telemental health platform.

What is involved in a psychiatric evaluation?

A psychiatric evaluation is an important part of properly diagnosing emotional, developmental, and behavior disorders that are affecting the quality of life for you or your child.

During your psychiatric evaluation, the PA Treatment Center team reviews important aspects of your lifestyle and health, including your:

  • Medical history
  • Current symptoms
  • Environment and safety
  • Family and social support system
  • Performance at work and school

To determine if an underlying medical condition is contributing to your symptoms or condition, the team might request blood work or other diagnostic tests.

If your child is receiving the evaluation, physician assistant Stephen McCarthy and nurse practitioner Justin Rohrback will speak with them on an age-appropriate level. The team also asks you questions about your child’s behaviors and their relationships at home, at school, and in other social situations.

When should I schedule a mental health evaluation?

The team at PA Treatment Center recommends scheduling a mental health evaluation for yourself if you’re having difficulty controlling intrusive thoughts, persistent feelings of sadness, or unexplained worry or fear.

Adolescents showing behavioral issues at home or in school can benefit from a psychiatric evaluation. You can also schedule an evaluation if your child shows signs of emotional distress, difficulty coping with trauma, loss of interest in activities, or persistent sadness.

When the team completes your psychiatric evaluation, they can work with you on a treatment plan to help you feel better now and in the long term. They offer medications as well as GeneSight genetic testing to determine which medications are the right fit for you.

The team also offers comprehensive addiction services to help you recover from substance abuse issues that contribute to poor mental health.
