In My Brain: Compass Radio For October

Oct 24, 2019

About a sixth of the U.S. population is living with mental illness. 

In a typical year, almost as many people get diagnosed with mental illness as break a bone.  The broken bone gets quick attention; we're still working on the efficacy of mental health treatment. 

The "clubhouse model" brings people with persistent mental illness together in a shared space.  In Medford, that is Southern Oregon Compass House

Once a month, one of its members joins us to talk about her or his experience with mental illness, in a segment we call Compass Radio.  Michael visits this month, to talk about trauma and dissociation.

Listen for a story of what it's like to live with mental illness.
