Prehospital Behavioral Emergencies and Crisis Response was designed to complement Jones & Bartlett Learning's Continuing Education series. This resource educates readers on the crisis and behavioral health issues of patients in the prehospital environment. Separated into three parts, coverage includes: the acute behavioral crisis, chronic mental health issues, and prehospital response.

Prehospital Behavioral Emergencies and Crisis Response simplifies various types of diagnosed mental disorders such as mood, personality, eating, and sleeping, as well as schizophrenia and psychosis. This is a great resource for continuing education courses and is also appropriate for any basic, intermediate, or paramedic prehospital provider course.
