What are Psychological Assessments?

Psychological assessment are similar to medical tests. If a patient has physical symptoms, a primary care provider might order an ultrasound and/or a range of blood tests to understand what’s causing those symptoms. The results of the tests will help the provider inform the development of a treatment plan. Psychological assessment are similar but for mental health. Psychologists gather information by conducting a history and background interview, administering psychometric tests, and/or observing a client’s behaviour to arrive at a diagnosis and guide treatment goals. Psychological assessments can clarify individual challenges and, where relevant, enable accommodation in work or school.

What clients are saying

- Layla Psychology Assessment Client, November 2023

“I was really happy with the experience as it was very informative and supportive in guiding me through the process, detailing the results, and offering me next steps. I really appreciated the ability to be in control of accessing care and not having to go through a family doctor and then wait for an indefinite period to receive an assessment. I feel that accessibility and autonomy allows me to be more efficient and effective in responding to my mental health needs now. I would highly recommend Layla, and my psychologist."
