A new paradigm for psychiatric emergencies

“Imagine this scenario: a busy mom struggles to balance work and parenting during the pandemic when suddenly her teenage son begins to anger. He gets out of control, screams threats, and kicks a hole in the wall. Neighbors call the police, who recommend the family go to the emergency department (ED). When the family arrives at the ED, the stresses of enforced isolation show on their exhausted, tearful faces. And unfortunately, in these extraordinary times, they’re far from alone.”

Gregg Miller and Seth Thomas are emergency physicians.

They share their stories and discuss their KevinMD article, “As the pandemic winds down, another crisis may be looming.” (https://www.kevinmd.com/blog/2021/05/as-the-pandemic-winds-down-another-crisis-may-be-looming.html)
