Urgent is defined as “calling for immediate attention.”1 Rakesh Jain, M.D., M.P.H., emphasized that patients with bipolar disorder often demand immediate attention from clinicians because these patients are at a high risk for situations that are urgent or that may trigger urgency, such as suicidality, aggression, legal difficulties, functional disability, occupational disruption, and marital disharmony. Patients with bipolar disorder have a significant risk for suicide.
