Mental Health Screening

  • Our approach is to start with our clients’ strengths and build from there.

    Michelle Harris, CPConsulting Director

 

Prevention of mental illness saves money. PWC (2014) found that every dollar spent on wellness saves industry approximately $2.40 through reduced absenteeism and reduced presenteeism, reduced workers’ compensation claims, and increased engagement in work. Mental Health Checkups provide an opportunity for workers to understand their current wellbeing, and risk profile and to make plans to nurture peak mental health.

CPConsulting offers a full suite of proactive preventative, treatment and specialty executive psychological services to business. A key pillar of this service is Mental Health Screening. This assessment involves clients completing several psychological tests through an easily managed online system. CPConsulting then provides expert assessment. This service is intended to be a screening test, to highlight any potential mental health problems or risks, and to give broad advice about possible solutions to risk.

Process

The client completes a range of testings that assess physical health, quality of life and emotional wellbeing. Results are analysed and summarised by CPConsulting and data is then provided to the client for inclusion in confidential health assessment reports. Results are provided in plain English not psychological jargon, to ensure clients can easily understand the feedback.
