Event description
Emergency Mental Health

About this Event

Mental Health Emergencies are on the rise, and it is reasonable to expect that front-line helping professionals will be faced with one at some point during their career. When treatment is offered promptly, most of these emergencies can be mitigated within 24 hours, without a required hospitalization. But when poorly managed, a mental health emergency can lead to negligence, malpractice, or worse, death.

This training is designed to educate front-line helping professionals how to differentiate between a mental health crisis and a mental health emergency, paying special attention to the helping professional’s legal and ethical obligations. This is done through the lens of person-centered treatment with an emphasis on unconditional positive regard.
