Cognition is Closely Linked With Mental Health
Mental, emotional, and behavioural disorders often have cognitive consequences. From complaints of brain fog to scientifically-proven deficits, a loss of cognitive clarity can make a patient’s recovery even more difficult, leading to a downward spiral.
CBS Health quantifies a patient’s brain health, identifying loss in capacity associated with mental health. Clinical psychologists use CBS Health to assist in clinical diagnosis of specific disorders, better target treatments based on the patient’s capacity, and track recovery over the course of treatment sessions. Assessments can be administered in person or as part of a telemedicine program.
For example, individuals who suffer from anxiety tend to score lower in CBS Health short-term memory tasks, like Spatial Span and Paired Associates. Depression can have far-reach effects on cognition, resulting in impairments that have real-life consequences, such as the planning abilities measured by the Spatial Planning task. With CBS Health, you have a window into scientifically-validated data on each cognitive domain, putting numbers to the subjective issues that cause patients to seek treatment.
