Psychiatric Emergmcy:

Psychiatric  Emergmcy is  the treatment of disorders of mood, thought and behavior in  an emergency  setting. Psychiatric emergencies are conditions in which  there is alteration in behaviors, emotion or thought presenting  in an acute form needing  immediate attention  and care. 

Psychiatric  Emergency care is a  time limited form of  treatment available  to clients who are unable or unwilling to utilize other forms of psychiatric treatment. These services are  aimed at  solving an immediate problem faced  by the client  and  hisher family. As an alternative resource, it  offers  easy  accessible care, access to highly trained psychiatric staff, minimal stigmatization when associated with general hospital setting and  fewer motivational constraints when requesting care. 

Psychiatric emergencies are seen mostly  in emergency room of  a hospital, but these can be  encountered in any  routine psychiatric set up. Psychiatric emergencies do not mean  that patients are suffering from only psychiatric disorders. They may be present due to medical conditions or conditions unrelated to medical field like disaster,  rape and violence.
