How do I get a mental health evaluation?

About a year and a half ago, I went through a serious depressive episode - the only one of my life. I saw a psychiatrist three times and completed about a year of therapy (with a therapist, not with the psychiatrist). Then I moved across the country. Now I need to get a clean bill of health - how?

After moving, I did not find a new therapist in my new city, as I felt (and still feel) mentally healthy.
I suppose I'm looking for the mental health equivalent of "getting a physical" or "a checkup"; I would like to undergo whatever evaluations I need to undergo in order to have a current record reflecting my good mental health. I have no idea how to go about doing this, as I've never contacted any sort of mental health provider when I wasn't having a problem. Does anyone have experience with this sort of thing?
