An emergency psychiatric assessment is a patient evaluation that is done in a high-risk state. They usually involve patients who may be agitated or paranoid or suffering from an acute manic or depressive episode. The psychiatrist provides a quick assessment of the patient’s mental health and prescribes a mode of treatment to get the patient under control.
