Who says it’s my responsiblity to assess, manage and mitigate risk of harm to others?
I could flip the question - why is risk assessment and management only an obligation of the mental health sector?
Why aren’t parole boards required to meet the same standard when releasing a known violent person? They don’t even have an obligation to the offender. Their obligation is to the safety of the public.
Why can’t opticians remove someone’s license to drive when they’ve failed an eye test or GPs remove licenses from those with ‘at risk’ medical conditions? Why aren’t these people risk assessed and arrested if they fail the eye test but found driving a car?
I think the same questions can be asked for risk assessment focusing on "danger to self."
