Community paramedics work to link patients with mental healthcare
from Kaiser Health News
For Kelly Kjelstrom, plugging the gaps in mental health care can mean something as simple as a late-night taco and a friendly chat. Kjelstrom, 45, is a community paramedic in Modesto, California. Part of his job is to help psychiatric patients in need of care avoid winding up in the emergency room, where they can get "boarded" for days, until they are released or a bed frees up at an inpatient facility.
