Suicidal Patients Must Have Access to Psychiatrist - Robert Simon, M.D.

1. Psychiatrists must be accessible, even if away.

2. Phone call starts treatment.

3. Patients must have hotline numbers.

So says, Robert Simon, M.D., here. I invite Dr. Simon to provide the data showing that these standards have ever helped to prevent a suicide. I will keep people posted of his reply.
