I’m 100% for embedded mental health. Totally on your team thereIn the hospital you have many more interactions. I'd argue that the vast majority are handled very well, with no physical altercation, through de-escalation strategies. Which, is why we need more MH pros either responding to these types of situations, or embedded with police. Police, especially as they become militarized, treat most every situation as a hammer/nail issue. We need other tools in our response toolbox.
i find it ludicrous to assume you can just send the cops home if you hire enough mental health people which is what some of these proposals imply
