Yahoo Associated Content boss Luke Beatty spent his Sunday saving a hallucinating, screaming young man from hurting or even killing himself.
Way to go, Luke!
Luke wrote about the events – and called for better mental health services in Denver – on his personal blog:
Today, I pulled a young guy out of the intersection in front of our house. He was laying the in middle of the street absolutely falling apart – hallucinating and having a complete nervous breakdown, endlessly screaming, terrified.
I tried so hard not to call an ambulance, but had no option, as he was bound to hurt himself, even once I got him to my porch.
Ambulances are not the therapeutic transports we need for this kind of situation.
I will be dedicating some time to finding an alternative in Denver. Emergency mental health pick up- of some kind…. maybe there is something like this out there?
