    Inpatient and Emergency Room

    Psychiatrists and licensed mental health clinicians at AAMC provide consultations and medication management for hospital patients and patients in the Emergency Department's (ED) Mental Health Evaluation Unit. Consults within the hospital occur at the request of the patient, a family member or a member of the patient's healthcare team. Our psychiatrists and clinicians assess patient needs and provide guidance to appropriate hospital staff, and/or referrals to inpatient psychiatric facilities, outpatient psychiatrists, therapists, or other community support services.
