Useful Resources

We compiled a list of community resources, instructions on what to do during an emergency and education on common behavioral disorders.  



What is an Emergency?
An emergency is a life threatening situation in which an individual is imminently threatening harm to self or others, severely disoriented or out of touch with reality, has a severe inability to function, or is otherwise distraught and out of control.

Examples: Acting on a suicide threat, Homicidal or threatening behavior, Self-injury needing immediate medical attention, severely impaired by drugs or alcohol, highly erratic or unusual behavior that indicates very unpredictable behavior and/or an inability to care for themselves. 

Please know that if you run out of psychiatric medication, that does not constitute an emergency. You MAY want to go or contact your local Community Mental Health Center or Admitting Facility (some are listed below), or your Primary Care Physician, and ask them if they can help you with your prescription needs. Otherwise, please make an appointment with our practice and we will schedule you with the Psychiatric ARNP at the next available time spot.

What do I do if I have an Emergency?
Call 911 - Police officers can come to your house and do a quick assessment, and if necessary,  take the person to a Baker Act Admitting Facility for the person to spend 24-72 hours in a safe place.     

If it's not life threatening, you might also consider calling your local Baker Act Admitting Facility:
