Why are these questions always asked in terms of "spend[ing] more money?"

An enlightened culture would address the need.

Ah, but you can't force anyone to go to Bert Nash, or pick up their meds at the pharmacist, or take the meds. Some things can not be controlled.

Our hospital needs to reinvest in a mental health ward to reassure members of our community that emergency, short-term mental health care is always available.

Targeted treatment is the best option with our now irresponsibly limited state budget. Target the worst cases first.

Start with LJW online posters.

Not without the ability to quickly get and keep the severe cases off the streets where they can hurt themselves or others. E.g., the guy here in town who walked right out in front of traffic repeatedly.
