Authors have studied the pattern of psychiatric morbidity at the general emergency out-patient services and at the emergency psychiatric services being run concurrently at a large teaching institution. The percentage of psychotics was observed to be maximum at emergency psychiatric services. Non-psychiatric medical officers were observed to deal with non-psychotic psychiatric emergencies themselves rather than referring them to emergency psychiatric services.
