mental health assessment

  1. 0 Hi,

    I am a nursing student and I need help conducting a mental health assessment, if anyone could give me a brief sample of a therapeutic dialogue for mental health assessment between the nurse and a schizophrenic patient, I am not sure how to ask the questions re: Appearance, Behaviour, and Cognition.

    Any help would be appreciated,

    Does your mental health nursing textbook not give an outline and samples of questions/interaction? What about your instructor?

    hi, bitfit, and welcome to allnurses!

    you can find information on how to do a mental health assessment in the sticky thread, but i can't recall which specific post you will find it on:
    there are weblinks to information on how to communicate therapeutically with patients on post #39 of the same thread.
