mental health services in schools

I think that having staff who can counsel in the schools is fine (e.g., school psychs, counselors), but some kids have serious mental health issues. These are medical conditions and I think it goes beyond what the school should provide. I know that's not the case, but when a child is hallucinating at school or wants to commit suicide, that child needs something more than some solution-focused counseling.

I almost feel like the education system it taking on too much. Not only do we have to teach academics, we are also now on the hook for mental health.
