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 SunshineCoast 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!
