Mental Illness Policy Org wants to hear from individuals who went to an emergency room seeking emergency treatment for a serious mental illness and were either turned away without a medical screening and injured themselves or someone else as a result of a lack of treatment, inadequate treatment or the emergency room’s failure to admit you to a hospital.
If you, or someone you know, has experienced a problem with getting psychiatric care in an emergency room in the last 18 months, please email Mental Illness Policy Org. at firstname.lastname@example.org with your complete contact info and specific story including name of hospital and dates. The information will be confidential and not be used without your permission. Follow Mental Illness Policy Org on Facebook and Twitter (@MentalIllPolicy)
