If we must live life to the fullest, we must be mentally tough to let it lead us in the right direction. Poor mental health can lead to many other issues, including anxiety disorder, mood swings, depression, eating disorders, and addictive behaviour. Causing us to struggle with deadlines, productivity, a sense of hopelessness, and powerlessness. 


Some of these events could be temporary, but when they become lasting and affect our lives and cause us to live out of touch with normal human behaviours, it becomes a mental illness that requires diagnosis and treatment.

Regardless of how your mental-health issue manifests, you must see your GP for proper filing and referral to a psychiatrist and psychologist where necessary. 


However, when people have to wait for more than 80 days to be assessed for mental health problems in Cambridgeshire & Peterborough, you might want to contact an NHS-partnered psychiatrist directly, who can access your healthcare record from your GP if you permit. 

Seeing a psychiatrist can also help you get a fast diagnosis and treatment. This is typically important as the Covid-19 pandemic had created an enormous backlog of treatment requests

Psychiatric Assessment in Cambridgeshire & Peterborough

Once you get in touch with a psychiatrist in Peterborough, you may be put through the assessment process. 


An assessment process is not an exam or an objective process with sets of questions to answer. It is a dynamic process designed to help the psychiatrist get as many clues as possible to help provide you with personalised care that you need. 


The process can be daunting and overwhelming, and if you feel you would need the help of someone you are familiar with, it is ok to approach an assessment centre with a family member.


The assessment process will involve you and the psychiatrists talking about your needs. It is a conversation and can cover a range of topics, including:


  • Your experience and mental health symptoms

  • Circumstances such as housing and finance

  • How you feel, your thoughts, and actions

  • Education, employment, and training

  • Gender and sexuality

  • Drug use and alcohol

  • Hobbies, strengths, and skills


The list is not exhaustible; they can be more. You are not obliged to talk about everything but those you are comfortable with. But the more things you talk about, the easier it will be to find out what works best for you
