Emergency Mental Health

It is the "psychological state of someone who is functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioral adjustment". There are more than 200 classified forms of mental illness. Mental health may include an individual's ability to enjoy life, and create a balance between life activities and efforts to achieve psychological resilience. Mental health is important at every stage of life, from childhood and adolescence through adulthood. 50% of mental health conditions begin by age 14 and 75% of mental health conditions develop by age 24. Prevention of a mental disorder at a young age may significantly decrease the chances that a child will suffer from it in the later life.

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. Psychiatric emergency services are rendered by professionals in the fields of medicine, nursing, psychology and social work. The demand for emergency psychiatric services has rapidly increased throughout the world since the 1960s, especially in urban areas. Care for patients in situations involving emergency psychiatry is complex. Symptoms and conditions behind psychiatric emergencies may include attempted suicide, substance dependence, alcohol intoxication, acute depression, presence of delusions, violence, and significant, rapid changes in behavior.
