In other words: Government tries to fix mental health issues by making criminal justice improvements (better trained police or treatment in jail). That may help. But it means building mental health resources INSIDE the criminal justice system. Not the health system.

Advocates are calling for that to change. What would it look like to have a mental health helpline, staffed by clinicians, that 911 can send people to? Or to have teams of mental health professionals, respond to some of these calls instead of police?
