Step 1Conduct online research.
Research the main categories of mental disorders and their evaluation and assessments. For example, you can use your favorite Internet search engine to look up the following sites:
- National Institute of Mental Health
- Mental Help.net
- American Psychological Association Help Center
Step 2Report on methods of diagnosis and assessments of the major mental disorders.
Write a one and one-half-page report on mental disorders, their diagnosis, and treatment. Identify the following elements in your paper:
- The major categories of mental disorders. ( Hint: Anxiety disorders are one category.)
- The commonly used methods of diagnosis.
- The treatment of choice (meaning the favorite current treatment) for this disorder.
