The dialogue you are about to hear is between a psychologist (played by Eliza) and a 27 year old woman (played by myself) brought to the ER by the police due to family’s concern that she intended to harm herself. Her medical history is unremarkable. No acute medical illnesses were found. Her utox and pregnancy tests were negative. The psychologist must determine whether she is actively suicidal, and if they should place her on a hold for inpatient mental health treatment.
