MENTAL HEALTH DIAGNOSIS AND ASSESSMENT

Write a research-based paper of at least 5 pages in current APA format that focuses on mental health assessment and a mental health diagnosis of your choice. The paper must include at least 3 scholarly references in addition to the course textbooks and the Bible. The paper will focus on 1 mental health disorder, and you will describe the symptoms that would be present for a client that could come to see you as a social worker.
Create a scenario where a client would present the mental health symptoms of a mental health diagnosis that you choose to research. Describe the client’s presenting symptoms and how you have used the appropriate assessment tools, such as the mental status examination, cultural views, family history, any substance abuse history, and any physical health problems, to make the correct diagnosis (as discussed in the textbooks). Then, discuss the appropriate interventions for that specific diagnosis with research information about what has been effective for the chosen mental health diagnosis. The paper must include a description of the client’s strengths and the utilization of the biblical views for making both the assessment and treatment interventions. Incorporate at least 1 relevant Bible verse.
