In brief: Yes
Usually, if you're entering an in-patient ward, you will have a physical, including a blood test.
For partial hospitalization programs (php) or intensive outpatient programs (iop), you might be asked for a physical from your primary care doctor. There's no need for a completed physical or blood test if you start individual outpatient psychotherapy.
