What is Emergency Psychiatry?

Emergency Psychiatry is the clinical application of psychiatry in emergency settings. Conditions requiring psychiatric interventions may include attempted suicide, substance abuse, depression, psychosis, violence or other rapid changes in behavior. The AAEP sponsors educational programs and provides a network of experts to address clinical, educational, administrative, research and legal programs for the diverse disciplines involved in emergency psychiatry.
