People with mental health issues have enough to deal with.

Remove the possibility of them being murdered by cops unable to differentiate between a mentally challenged individual needing help, and a person they believe might threaten their life.

If they pass it, it is a good start at dealing with, assessing, and treating mental health.
No Ronny we won’t turn them out to the streets.
