Welcome to the Emergency Psychiatry SIG!


Early Career Representatives (ECP):

The Emergency Psychiatry SIG is among the largest and most prominent organizations of physicians focused on emergency psychiatric practice. The SIG provides a way for Academy members to:

The SIG welcomes Academy members from all practice settings–whether seeing an occasional consult in the emergency department or practice full-time in crisis services.

The Emergency Psychiatry SIG shares ACLP’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. We welcome diversity of thought and experience, and we aim to make professional and networking opportunities open to all SIG members in a transparent, welcoming manner. It is vital that we provide quality mental health care in emergency departments and crisis centers, whose patients are disproportionately minority and underserved.
