The psychiatric interview is the most crucial element in the evaluation and care of persons with mental illness. A significant purpose of the initial psychiatric interview is to obtain information that will establish a criteria based diagnosis. This process, helpful in the prediction of the course of the illness and the prognosis, leads to treatment decisions. A well-conducted psychiatric interview provides a multidimensional understanding of the disorder’s biopsychosocial elements. It provides the information necessary for the psychiatrist, in collaboration with the patient, to develop a person centered treatment plan. Equally important, the interview itself is often an essential part of the treatment process. From the very first moments of the encounter, the interview shapes the nature of the patient–physician relationship, which can have a profound influence on the outcome of treatment. The settings in which the psychiatric interview takes place include psychiatric inpatient units, medical nonpsychiatric inpatient units, emergency rooms, outpatient offices, nursing homes, other residential programs, and correctional facilities. The length of time for the interview, and its focus, will vary depending on the setting, the specific purpose of the interview, and other factors.
