Dr. Rossi :

Good Morning,

Dr. Rossi :

Waiting until Monday seems far away when he's dealing w. this at the moment.

Dr. Rossi :

Would you be able to bring him to an innetwork psychiatric clinic near you?

Dr. Rossi :

His behavior may be triggered by differnt factors i.e. depressive disorder, extreme stress and inability to cope properly, drug use, etc.

Dr. Rossi :

You may also phone your insurance carrier and ask for in home mobile assessment clinician to come to see him in your home. Often it is a psychiatric nurse or a psychologist who does the evaluation. You could ask if the VNA (visiting nurses association) is in your network. There are also others that can do it such as a community mental health mobile/crisis team assessment team.

Dr. Rossi :

The United Way toll free #211 dialed from a land line can adivise which one covers your area or, by googling community mental health and state/area of residence.

Dr. Rossi :

It shows that you're off line now. Feel free to clarify what is your question this morning that you're seeking feedback on.
