Paula Colledge MS, PA-C is a semi-retired neurosurgical physician assistant with 40-plus years of experience working in health care. Her work with the military and doing point of care work has led her to the stark reality that our medical system is broken. Care can be elusive even for those that can afford it and those that cannot are truly stuck. This fact combined with production pressures on practitioners makes for brief and incomplete care. She explains: We need to think outside the box, especially regarding mental health. Suicide rates in Montana reflect the severity of this mental health crisis. We are at the top of the nation, something we take to heart as we see patients. Military and tribal individuals suffer the most, and are often the most underserved. VA benefits can be hard to reach and long wait times for some, and it is very difficult to find a mental health provider that will take Tricare.
When I met Dave(Simmons), the bald guy with a guitar, and heard about UBU, I knew that this is the kind of work I could sink my teeth into. To work with kids and grown-ups before they experience the inability to function in our complicated and fractured world is unique and powerful. I am extremely excited to throw my energy into helping expand these residencies to more people. I honestly feel that every human can benefit from learning how to effectively express themselves, to improve literacy around discussing feelings of despair, and to find their voices in the world.
Paula is also a singer/songwriter, playing music around the fire with her husband, David and most recently playing with other medical professionals in Conscious Sedation, a rock and roll band. She lives on a farm in Montana raising Goldendoodle puppies, bees, and vegetables.
