Summary: Larry Hook, MD

Minnesota ERs are being inundated with psychiatric patients, who often wait for long periods waiting for their appropriate next destination. Often, roadblocks elsewhere in the system contribute to this issue. Everyone feels the impact, whether they are a patient, a provider, a caregiver, a public safety officer or first responder, a legislator, or family member. It’s a complicated, multi-faceted, problem that calls for a statewide solution. Many have studied the situation and this program brings them together to share, learn, brainstorm, dream and ACT to build a better roadmap. We will hear from individuals and systems, look at transitions of care and learn about investments in bridge-building solutions to address those intersections. We have all been stuck in traffic for too long. It’s a matter of public safety. Now is the time to come together and construct a smoother pathway for the future.
