Compass Radio: Off The Streets

Oct 12, 2017

Our society came to the conclusion that keeping people locked up in mental hospitals was unfair.  But the system that followed can hardly be called a system. 

People with mental illness don't often go to the hospital, but they can end up on the streets or in jail. 

Compass House in Medford offers an alternative... a "clubhouse" model in which people help themselves and each other back from mental illness. 

We visit with clubhouse members in this month's edition of Compass Radio, a segment we share with the house.
