Phoenix Mental Health Services offer a comprehensive depression and anxiety assessment and treatment package. The aim of this clinic is to:
Offer a prompt screening for assessment
Utilise multiple screenings and questionnaires to allow the Consultant Psychiatrist to get as much background information as possible before meeting you.
Offer a remote or face-to-face assessment with the Consultant Psychiatrist, who will conduct a clinical assessment and make a firm diagnosis, if one has not already been given.
If appropriate, start medication and monitor its effect
If appropriate, start medication immediately and offer quick access to alternative treatments, often not available on the NHS or have long waiting lists.
We offer a depression and anxiety assessment treatment package that includes genetic testing. This would occur before your initial assessment with a Consultant Psychiatrist. This test is designed to help your clinician optimise treatment decisions for you by identifying specific genetic markers that indicate which treatments are likely to work as intended, have no effect, or cause adverse effects. To learn more about this, click here.
Below is a flow chart showing our approach and the investigations and treatment modalities we offer.
Please note that our depression and anxiety assessment and treatment packages differ from a standalone assessment in that it includes two objective questionnaires that measure symptoms of depression and anxiety (separately) and generates a report with an indication of symptoms severity. This will be passed on to your consultant prior to your appointment for review.
