LPCA of GA presents:

1013: What is the Emergency?

This is a live, synchronous webinar for 3 Ethics Hours.  Many people are confused about what to do in the face of a mental health emergency. What constitutes a mental health emergency? As with any medical emergency, a mental health emergency can be life threatening.  Most of the time mental health emergencies are those involving the threat of suicide or the occurrence of an actual suicide attempt. Other types of mental health emergency may involve the threat of harm to another person.  In a situation where a patient is decompensating or becoming psychotic and is being guided by audio/visual hallucinations it is sometimes possible that there is a threat posed to another person.
