Hospital Emergency Department
Is there an emergency such as medical or mental health emergency? If less intense options (e.g. calling a crisis line) are not possible or haven't helped, then it may be helpful to visit the local hospital Emergency Department. Typical mental health emergencies include:
* thoughts of suicide to the point where the person requires emergency help to keep them from ending their life;
* manic episode or psychosis where a person is behaving in an irrational way with inability to function.
