Waiting for workplace accommodations is risky
A comprehensive psychological assessment is the key to getting workplace accommodations. A bad performance review is rough. You put your heart and soul into work and negative feedback is downright hurtful. Even if you hate your job and you don’t care, it is a good idea to protect yourself from getting fired.
How long does it take?
Most other clinics in the area make you wait months for an appointment. That delay contributes to workplace stress. Getting an assessment quickly may even be the key to saving your job.
DCNE can get you in much faster and you won’t have to wait another 3 months for your report. We will get that back to you faster too. We do this because we see ourselves as your partner, not only your mental health provider. In some instances there are delays but our track record is fast.
Why waiting can be bad
Waiting for a comprehensive psychological evaluation can be detrimental for a number of reasons. It is important to seek evaluation and treatment as soon as possible in order to address any mental health concerns and to prevent potential worsening of symptoms.
Here are some reasons why waiting for a comprehensive psychological evaluation can be bad:
- Delayed treatment: Delaying evaluation and treatment can lead to a delay in addressing mental health concerns. This can result in the worsening of symptoms and can also lead to the development of additional mental health issues. That isn’t good for work or play.
- Increased suffering: Waiting for a comprehensive psychological evaluation can lead to increased suffering. How many more “one-on-ones” with your boss do you really want? Acting now can make it easier to cope. You’ll be less likely to experience negative feelings and emotions.
- Interference with daily functioning: Mental health concerns can interfere with your ability to work, attend school, or engage in leisure activities. That is the whole point. Why suffer more if you can get the assessment now?
- Negative impacts on relationships: Mental health concerns can also have negative impacts on relationships with bosses, colleagues, and peers. We spend 40 hours of our week at work. It is important to have good relationships with people at work. The alternative can be torture.
It is important to remember that an evaluation for mental health concerns is a sign of strength and is a way to take care of yourself.
It is never too late to seek help. You shouldn’t have to wait for help!
