To Smurfy-
Teachers have very LITTLE power in the US. As far as "influencing," all any of us can do is pay attention to people who need help and try to get it for them. Unfortunately, lots of people write off mental illness as a "not my problem" or "I'm not trained" situation and the folks who need help don't get it.

Please don't act like it's the teachers' faults or like we're not saddened, worried, or scared every time this happens. We are. Most of us do what we can to encourage kids to speak up, handle problems, keep them in school because their homes suck so much, but at the end of the day, that's the only power we have.
