Mental illness is not good for anyone. It can endanger the life of the ill person, often by their own decision. Suicide is a constant challenge for mental health professionals and the people they serve.
At Compass House in Medford, several club members have stories to tell about considering or attempting suicide.
We meet one of them, Mary C., in this month's edition of Compass Radio.
Compass House Executive Director Elizabeth Hazlewood returns as well.
