Our newest mental health co-responder crews have just completed their first two shifts and have already made an impact on patients experiencing a mental health crisis.

This particular team services the Sunshine Coast region, based out of Birtinya Ambulance Station with the co-responder program about to expand even further regionally to Cairns and Townsville.

By pairing a mental health clinician with a paramedic, care that would normally be provided in an emergency department can be given to a patient in the comfort of their own home and often a more appropriate referral pathway can be identified.

Welcome to the QAS team Rachel and Francis!
