If the client is doing well with current medications, ask him/her to buy the medications from the shop and continue with the same (for a few days while trying to contact or getting alternate help from another psychiatrist) as he/she cannot reach his/her psychiatrist. If the client cannot afford the medications, he/she can go to District hospital and collect free medications. If the client has some problem for which he/wants to talk to his psychiatrist, and is unable to cope with an alternate professional, please help him/her by yourself trying to contact/liaison with his/her psychiatrist (post finding out the phone number). If the psychiatrist shares his/her email id or alternative number please share it with patient, so that he/she can communicate with him. Or else you can be the liaison person between the psychiatrist and patient till the situation eases and he is able to contact his doctor on his/her own.
