When it comes to solving the problems in our mental health system, too many people are losing touch with reality. And I’m not referring to the patients.ConsiderÂ the recommendations from the recent coroner’s inquest into the police shooting of Saanich’s Majencio Camaso. The jury suggested police should obtain more training in handling unstable people, and mental health emergency response teams should become more omnipresent.
Sounds good. Except it’s assumed that, if only people undergoing psychological crises are safely picked up, there’s somewhere to take them where they’ll receive effective help.
What city are those jurors living in?
