Behavioral Health Evaluation

A behavioral health evaluation is an exercise which assesses and analyses the medical condition of a patient with behavioral aberrations like extremely moodiness, bipolar disorder, and paranoia and so on. It is usually conducted on patients who are deemed fit to be allowed to go home, and not on critically ill patients. It is undertaken by counselors and psychiatrists to keep a check on the progress of their patients, and also to get an initial opinion of new undiagnosed patients.
