“Montclair cops fight violence, medication and alcohol with classes for college students”, that is the title of an article on Tapinto.web dated on March 21.
I’m questioning what can a police officer, who will not be educated in psychological well being, who will not be a therapist, not specialised in habit remedy, train center faculty youngsters about violence, medication and alcohol? I consider it’s elementary that matters corresponding to violence, medication and alcohol (and human trafficking) are current in college students’ curriculum, though I consider that the one that teaches about that ought to come from the psychological well being sector, not legislation enforcement.
We have to discuss these matters from a psychological well being/public well being perspective. Regulation enforcement officers will not be certified to show about these matters regardless of what number of hours of coaching on psychological well being they’ve obtained. They don’t seem to be certified. We have already got certified employees within the colleges and we will positively depend on psychological well being professionals locally as effectively.
