Recently childmind.org shared their resources created to help parents deal with psychiatric crises. Including what will happen when you get to the ER, and what can (and can’t) the ER do for your child? Similarly, if a child is admitted to in-patient psychiatric treatment, what can you expect, and what is your role? They’ve also rounded up the latest thinking about several disorders that appear in adolescence and can lead to psychiatric emergencies — schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and borderline personality disorder.
Be sure to check out the great resources above and check back soon for more crisis resources and information as this page is currently under construction.
