Emergency Psychiatry SIG

Welcome to the Emergency Psychiatry SIG!

Chair: Scott Simpson, MD, MPH, and Allison Hadley, MD


The Emergency Psychiatry SIG provides a way for Academy members to connect over a shared interest in emergency psychiatry and ensure that the Academy maintains its leading role in advancing the treatment of behavioral emergencies. SIG members network throughout the year to develop content for the annual meeting, collaborate on shared research and clinical projects, share best practices, and promote state-of-the-art science in emergency psychiatry among Academy members – whether those members see an occasional consult in the emergency department or practice full-time in crisis services.
