We may be getting better over time, but society still fears mental illness in ways it does not shrink from physical illness or injury.
Many organizations are set up to make life easier for people who struggle with mental illness, including Southern Oregon Compass House in Medford. Once a month we hear a personal story from a clubhouse member about their own experience.
This month Compass Radio features a woman with a physical injury among the issues she faces.
Compass House Executive Director Elizabeth Hazlewood also joins us.
