Clinical Assessment Interviews, Diagnosis and Reports
Mental Health Reviews and Medico-legal Reports for Court
Psychologists might write medico legal or psycho legal reports to form the basis of expert evidence in forensic settings, a legal hearing or tribunal. Solicitors may request from a psychologist to assess the psychological wellbeing, psychological injuries or impairment of an individual, diagnose, advise on treatment prognosis and recommend treatment options. In assessment reports I usually include some background information and psychological history, treatment progress, my clinical observations and opinion, recommendations, and whether there is need for further treatments or assessments.
Reports are charged either at my hourly rates or the requesting agency’s set rates. I receive requests for reports for:
- Department of Health and Human Services (i.e., Child Protection)
- Department of Home Affairs – for visas, immigration, mental health reviews
- Victims of Crime reports (VOCAT assessment and diagnosis reports completed for those impacted by violence. Please note, this report can only be requested by a solicitor)
- Psychological assessments and mental health reviews for personal Injury, workcover, TAC and institutional abuse reports to support legal proceedings
- Assessment of children’s mental health and families for court
If You are Struggling in Your Studies
Other than assessment reports used in court, sometimes I complete disability support applications or reports for university or school students if their mental health difficulties interfere with their studies. These recommendations may give relevant context to the teachers and academic staff to help support you. If you need a report completed for this purpose, please specify this when you book an appointment with me.
