A psychiatric evaluation is a mental health assessment that consists of a computerized online Cognitive Testing, NeuroPsych questionnaire, Life Habits Checklist, and Medical Symptom Questionnaire.The computerized neurocognitive test is the same test used by psychiatrist, psychologist, and other mental health practitioners to determine your brain's level of functioning. The NeuroPsych Questionaire identifies issues you may have with attention, impulsivity, anxiety, depression, mania, sleep disturbance, and substance abuse. The Medical Symptoms Questionnaire assists in identifying physical health issues which may be affecting your mental health. The Life Habits checklists identifies areas in your lifestyle in need of improvement.The tests can be completed on your computer in the privacy of your home and takes about 45 minutes to complete. Your results are then reviewed by a psychiatric nurse practitioner and a treatment plan with supplement recommendations along with your test results will be sent to you.You may also choose to have your results and test reviewed by telephone consultation with a psychiatric nurse practitioner. The treatment plan consists of individualized recommendations which will include nutritional supplement recommendations, medication recommendations (if desired), and lifestyle change recommendations. Recommendations for further laboratory testing is also included if appropriate.

The following clinical domains are tested:

Composite Memory

Measures: How well you are able to recognize, remember and retrieve words and geometric figures. Identify problems with the storage, manipulation, and retrieval of information. (results come from sum of verbal‐VBM and visual‐VIM memory tests)

Relevance: Remembering and learning new information, turning off the stove, recalling an appointment or rehabilitation information, taking medications, attending class, inability to navigate in familiar places, recalling images, etc.

Verbal Memory

Measures: How well you can recognize, remember, and retrieve words e.g. exploit or attend literal representations or attribute.

Relevance: Remembering, turning off the stove, recalling an appointment or rehabilitation information, taking medications, and attending class.

Visual Memory

Measures: How well you can recognize, remember and retrieve geometric figures e.g. exploit or attend symbolic or spatial representations.

Relevance: Remembering graphic instructions, navigating, operating machines, recalling images, remember a calendar of events, and accomplishing artistic or craft skills.

Processing Speed

Measures: How well you can automatically and fluently perform relatively easy or overlearned cognitive tasks, especially when high mental efficiency is required i.e. attention and focused concentration. (results come from the SDC test)

Relevance: Medication effect, ability to respond/react to threats, take evasive action or see possible danger/risk signs, or issues with accuracy and detail.

Executive Function

Measures: How well you recognize set shifting (mental flexibility) and abstraction (rules, categories) and manages multiple tasks simultaneously. (results come from the SAT test)

Relevance: Ability to sequence tasks and manage multiple tasks simultaneously, flexibility required for self‐correction, tracking and responding to a set of simple instructions.

Psychomotor Speed

Measures: How well you recognize and process information i.e., perceiving, attending/responding to incoming information, motor speed, fine motor coordination, and visual‐perceptual ability.

Relevance: Distractibility, fitness‐to‐drive, occupation issues, obsessive concern with accuracy and detail. May be a result of: medication effects, anxiety, learning disabilities, visual perceptual problems, working under time pressure, typing and machine operation.

Reaction Time

Measures: How fast the you can react, in milliseconds, to a simple and increasingly complex direction set.

Relevance: Driving a car, attending to conversation, tracking and responding to a set of simple instructions, taking longer to decide what response to make.

Complex Attention

Measures: How well you can maintain focus and perform quickly and accurately e.g.problem attending to multiple stimuli at the same time. Ability to track and respond to information over brief or lengthy periods of time and/or performs mental tasks quickly and accurately requiring vigilance.

Relevance: Self‐regulation, learning, productivity, and behavioral control.

Cognitive Flexibility

Measures: How well you are able to adapt to rapidly changing and increasingly complex set of directions and/or to manipulate the information

Relevance: Reasoning, switching tasks, decision‐making, impulse control, strategy formation, attending to conversation

Reasoning

Measures: How well you are able to reason using non‐verbal visual‐abstract stimuli. This type of perceptual reasoning ability can help assess whether a subject can solve problems.

Relevance: Solving problems that can support demands on subjects’ verbal and quantitative abilities. The ability to forge insights, discern meaning, and the ability to perceive relationships.

Social Acuity

Measures: How well you can recognize emotions. The ability to recognize social cues or read facial expressions. Provides insight into insensitivity to social standards and social behavioral regulation e.g. appropriate empathy.

Relevance: May exhibit an increase in extraversion or introversion (inappropriate) behavior, decreased inhibition, or subtle or episodic apathy or restlessness.

Working Memory

Measures: How well you can recognize, temporarily storing and manage geometric figures e.g. exploit the order of symbolic stimuli. Memory system associated with sensory, perceptual, attentional, and short‐term memory processes (results come from the FPCPT test)

Relevance: Ability to carry out short‐term memory tasks that support decision making,problem solving, planning, and execution. Enables people to respond according to the demands of a “right now” situation.

Sustained Attention

Measures: How well you can direct and focus cognitive activity on specific stimuli. In order to complete any cognitively planned activity, any sequenced action, or any thought one must use sustained attention. (results come from the FPCPT test)

Relevance: Ability to focus an activity e.g. reading long enough to complete the task. Problems occur when a distraction arises and interrupts and interferes with tasks.
