What a Neuropsychological Assessment Can Tell You

What a Neuropsychological Assessment Can Tell You

For CEOs and business professionals alike, mental illness may not always be on the forefront of priorities. Businesses need a leader who can dedicate time, energy, and money into their pursuits, and treatment for mental illness can quickly seem to take away from this. While it’s true that treatment for mental illness does take time and effort, this is not wasted, as a leader can better serve their business and team by taking care of their mental, physical, and spiritual health. The first step in prioritizing your mental health as a leader, is to undergo a neuropsychological assessment. From there, you will have the knowledge you need to move forward with a treatment program dedicated just for business professionals.

A neuropsychological assessment is a comprehensive evaluation that covers a number of purposes, as expressed by Stanford Healthcare:

 

  • Cognitive functions: the presence, nature, and severity of cognitive dysfunction is assessed. With this, your doctor will be able to form a baseline with which to base your treatment recommendations off of.
  • Differential diagnosis: this may be used to confirm or clarify a diagnosis, including testing to see if depression contributes to the mental illness.
  • Treatment planning: strengths and weaknesses may be provided to help guide a client through rehabilitation and other areas of life, as well as treatment options.

 

Put simply, neuropsychological assessments seek to gain an understanding on how the brain affects a person’s thinking and behavioral functions. If a mental disorder is diagnosed, this could bring you one step closer to receiving the help you need – which could dramatically reduce the stress you experience on a daily basis while attempting to manage undesirable symptoms -alongside running a successful business.

After receiving a diagnosis, you may be referred to an outpatient or inpatient treatment center. Business professionals require specific needs in order to manage their health and their business; there are treatment centers available for professionals, which may offer the following: a business center with computer use and conference room availability, maximized comfort with premium sheets, healthy meals that are catered, and private living space to optimize recovery. Your business relies on your mental, physical, and spiritual health. Take that leap today.

If you haven’t already, speak with a professional from a reputable treatment center to learn more about programs to best suit your needs. Optimal recovery is possible, and you are not alone in your pursuit for happiness, health, and wellbeing.
