(Sorry if this was addressed in the linked artice, I tried to skim it so hopefully it wasn't.)

What do you think about the policies of suicide hotlines and mental health professionals involving actions taken against a suicidal person's will that can cause more harm than inaction? What I mean specifically is that I've heard of police calls which put the person at risk. (due to their status as POC, or as mentally ill, such as schizophrenics who are often harmed due to a police officer not understanding or being trained properly) also suicide hotlines that either contact the police or force hospital stays for suicidal people, giving them the extra burden of medical bills or of putting their jobs at stake.

As someone who's been in therapy for years, thank you very much for what you do.
