Canada's largest mental health hospital calls for removal of police from front lines for people in crisis: "Police are not trained in crisis care"

You don’t have to be a mental professional, who said that? If a student has hearing issues, you make accommodations to support the student so they can receive instruction effectively? Does that make the teacher a hearing expert? No, they’re just teaching. Now, making these accommodations can obviously become too much for one teacher, so we need more teachers, and we need a doctor that can help us out by providing hearing aids. So, when a student has mental health problems, we could use extra support in the classroom by another teacher, and we could use the help of the doctor to provide any medication and whatever else to help them. The teacher obviously still has to work with and support that student, so it is their responsibility to deal with those issues, yet they are not a mental health professional.
