Mental Health Toolkit
Share |

Despite numerous legislative successes that improve access to care for our patients, we know all too well that patients presenting with a mental health condition still face great barriers to accessing timely treatment. That’s why the Chapter felt we needed to supplement our efforts with a non-legislative approach as well.

California ACEP's new Mental Health toolkit includes a pocket medication guide that helps sort out the varying side effects and drug-drug interactions of anti-psychotic medications, as well as de-escalation tips and scripting.

We especially want to thank the members of the Mental Health Work Group, Drs. Genevieve Santillanes, Valerie Norton, Aimee Moulin, Larry Stock, Cameron McClure, Catherine Ferguson, Marc Futernick, Haley Manella, Jim Hardy, and Kevin Jones for all of their work on this project.


 As California ACEP makes headway in sponsoring legislation to help our mental health patients and your practice, we hope our efforts with these toolkits will help you change the course of your patients’ care and dispositions from the emergency department.
