There is a need to not only understand psychiatric emergencies in low- and middle-income countries but also to formulate logical and acceptable forms of intervention. This book gives the reader an overview of the kinds of psychiatric emergencies that can occur and the strategies employed to manage these in developing countries. The book covers anxiety disorders, psychotic disorders, personality disorders, substance abuse disorders, grief, suicidal behaviour and psychiatric emergencies following disasters. It also deals with special population groups, such as women, children and the elderly, who require different modes of intervention.
