Category Archives: Diagnostic Assessment Resources

A case worker should always make a referral for a diagnostic assessment when:

1. A refugee arrives with history of mental health treatment in home country or refugee camp;

2. A refugee seems to have signs and symptoms of mental health problems that are making it hard for the refugee to follow through on required resettlement tasks.

A diagnostic assessment can help a caseworker get more resources for a refugee and assist the caseworker in managing a difficult case. These resources include:

Treatment resources from clinics or individual mental health providers
Medications from psychiatrists
Evaluations and referrals for adult mental health case management services (a very good resource for case managers to access when they have a refugee situation that is difficult and time consuming for mental health reasons).

It is necessary to have a psychological evaluation if an individual wishes to apply for Social Security based on a mental health/psychiatric disability.
