Mental illness and addiction make up one of every eight emergency department visits in the U.S. About 41 percent of psychiatric visits lead to hospital admission, which is 2.5 times the rate of emergency department visits for other conditions. People increasingly rely on emergency departments for basic care and intermediate services because of the lack of access to mental health and addiction services. To help reduce hospital admissions for behavioral health conditions, we’ll focus on building partnerships between behavioral health treatment organizations and emergency departments to avoid unnecessary, costly emergency department admissions.
Hear from WestCare Nevada and Jefferson Mental Health Center on their experiences about the key elements of partnership and how to develop your own. Experts from the American Association for Emergency Psychiatry will lead and frame the conversation.
