Lifting Patients Out of Crisis and Into Recovery

(Source: Tri-City Medical Center) - Kristen Bologna and Amanda Greenwell are Tri-City Medical Center’s Psychiatric Liaisons. “Every day is different, and because people are in crisis, they are very vulnerable. We get to be their advocates,” Bologna and Greenwell said. Psychiatric liaisons are many patients’ first resource when they’re facing a mental health crises in TCMC’s emergency room. Once a physician determines the patient is in a mental health crisis, they will submit for a consultation with the psychiatric liaisons. The liaisons then meet with and assess the patient to determine a recovery plan. “People come in with severe mental illness and are in a terrible place. We lift people out of their crisis,” said Amanda. Next steps could include scheduling the patient an appointment with TCMC’s Outpatient Behavioral Health Services Department, which provides a robust curriculum for patients including group and individual therapy.
