Psychiatric Evaluation & Followed Care

Followed Care is the activity carried out by a qualified professional to integrate into the daily life of the patient. This tries to listen, help and push the patient towards his future autonomy without forgetting the capacity for suffering or the difficulty of each episode.


What is Psychiatric Evaluation?

A psychiatric evaluation is used to diagnose emotional, behavioral, or developmental disorders. The evaluation of a child, an adolescent or an adult is based on physical, social, rational (cognitive), emotional and educational behaviors. It also takes into account a person's genes and environment.

Followed Care is a resource that is part of the field of mental health and through which the companion and accompanied meet to carry out therapeutic work. A link is established between the two to, from there, be able to reestablish and heal those aspects of the person's mental health that are deteriorated.

How Does Psychiatric Therapy Help Me?

Psychotherapy can be helpful in treating most mental health problems, including the following:

Anxiety disorders, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), phobias, panic disorder, or post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
Mood disorders, such as bipolar disorder
Major depressive disorder, postpartum depression 
Personality disorders, such as borderline personality disorder or dependent personality disorder
Schizophrenia or other disorders that cause disconnection from reality (psychotic disorders)


How can a psychiatric evaluation and follow care help?

Many times, family members, partners, teachers, or friends are the first to suspect that their loved one or student has a mental health problem. It is usually due to feelings, behaviors, or circumstances in the environment that cause the person to act in a way that is disruptive, rebellious, or sad. You could even have relationship problems with family or friends. Or it may cause problems with work or school, or with sleeping or eating. It is important that if the family suspects that there is a problem in any of these areas, an evaluation is done as soon as possible.

For its part, psychiatric follow care is carried out to provide the patient with greater autonomy, help him maintain or reestablish the ties of his environment, family, social, work, mediating, preventing or accompanying conflictive situations during his daily life, in order to promote family support that helps recovery. It also prevents these problems from becoming chronic and a subsequent social stigmatization. At Lotus Wellnes Institute we offer the Medication Management service to support all those people who require additional management to fully comply with their treatment.
