The Neuropsychology Service sees individuals who have been diagnosed with a mental illness to provide information about their cognitive abilities (e.g., attention, memory, and other thinking skills).
An evaluation is completed that involves doing an interview and paper-and-pencil testing. The findings are used to help answer questions about diagnosis (e.g., “Do I have Alzheimer’s disease?”), day-to-day living (e.g., “How can I cope with memory or concentration problems at home?”), and future planning (e.g., “What kinds of supports do I need to help me be more successful at school or at work?”)
