Our phonebooks used to have Mental Health Emergency hotlines that you could call any time of day or night. Three parts to this ques. 1. How could we make these numbers more accessible? 2. Is it possible to devise Mental Health Emergency Codes that could be posted on Facebook? If someone is in distress they could use a code and friends could respond (fines imposed if code is misused). They could be listed according to severity of emergency. Finally, while police are trained in MH area, should there be First Responder Mental HealthTeam that accompanies them on certain calls?
