Child psychiatric emergencies are high-risk, high-liability situations. The recent high-profile school shootings, controversies about use of psychiatric medication for children and adolescents, and increasing awareness of the prevalence of child psychiatric illness combined with lack of access to care has heightened public interest in and concern about managing child psychiatric emergencies. Helping Kids in Crisis introduces the reader to all aspects of psychiatric evaluation, risk assessment, decision-making, and stabilization for children in crisis, and provides guidance on when symptoms are severe enough to warrant an emergency room referral.
