#30: Responding to Psychiatric Crises with James Hart

Guest: James Hart, psychiatric medical director

For today’s show, I sat down with Dr. James Hart, who serves as the medical director of Rolling Hills Hospital. Located south of Nashville, Tennessee, Rolling Hills is an acute care psychiatric hospital that provides short-term interventions for individuals experiencing mental health crises. Dr. Hart shares how his team stays prepared for responding to the wide array of time-sensitive psychiatric emergencies that present at their doorstep and explains how electroconvulsive therapy has evolved to become a safe, effective treatment option that can often work faster than medication.
