What If Mental Health First Aid Were as Widespread as CPR? New York City’s Planning to Do It

Mental health is finally starting to get the proper attention it deserves.

Punishing people or throwing them in jail DOESN'T solve the problem.

It makes the problem worse!

Finally, police are being trained on how to appropriately handle incidents of mental illness and diffuse situations successfully.

Why is this important?

"One in every four Americans experiences mental illness, and lack of police understanding can lead to tragedy."

Can??

It DOES lead to tragedy.

I consider this a good start.
