Last night I had the pleasure of teaming up with my colleagues Dr. Jennifer Maltz and Moshe Braun of Hatzala Beit Shemesh on an exciting new initiative to prepare the EMT staff for mental health emergencies.
It was the first of a two-part lecture series and began with a talk on evaluating and assisting the acutely psychotic patient. Next week will focus on the suicidal patient.
Hatzala Beit Shemesh is a great organization led by a fantastic volunteer staff and dedicated to the saving lives of their neighbors and fellow community members. What a zechus to work with such a team!
