Compass Radio: Jenna's Story


We're getting better at understanding and showing compassion for mental illness.  For one thing, we no longer "warehouse" people with mental illness in huge state hospitals, miles from the patients' communities and support systems. 

But people working through mental illness can still be social pariahs.  Clubhouse arrangements like Southern Oregon Compass House in Medford help.  Club members hang and work in a supportive environment. 

Once a month, we meet a member of the club in our Compass Radio segment, and this month, we hear from Jenna.  Executive Director Elizabeth Hazlewood also joins us.
