Psychiatric care is interdisciplinary. Your plan of care may include the use of other mental health professionals for the delivery of appropriate care. For example, someone who has been chronically out of work and whose unemployed status has contributed to his or her depression might require social work or educational assessment to address that aspect of the client’s poor psychological functioning.RequirementsSupport your assessment, diagnosis, and treatment plan with appropriate literature citations.The paper should be no more than ten pages in length, not including a title page and references.Use current APA formatting and citations.Acronyms should not be used.The assessment must be well written and of professional quality.
