BiolScreen. Often psychological symptoms in students are erroneously interpreted as psychological disorders. The diagnosis of psychological disorders requires a biopsychosoocial assessment. This prevents misdiagnosis for what may be normal unpleasant emotions, normal physiological changes as the result of unhealthy behaviours, side-effects of pharmacological treatments, or emotional and behavioural symptoms of a physical illness. But it can be a time-consuming task. The BiolScreen,used in conjunction with a clinical interview, will facilitate an accurate assessment to enable timely treatment of the underlying cause of symptoms.
