Mental Healthcare From Inside: Compass Radio


The end of most institutionalization in mental healthcare means many people with mental illness live among us. 

But it does not necessarily mean mental illness is any better understood.  Stigma still comes with mental illness, a condition Southern Oregon Compass House in Medford works to change. 

Compass House is a clubhouse for people with recurrent mental illness, and our partner in a monthly segment we call simply Compass Radio.  Listen for a new first-person story of life with mental illness, and recovery in progress.
