Compass Radio: Mental Illness From The Inside

Compass_House.jpg
socompasshouse.org

The stigma may be slowly coming unstuck from mental illness in America, but there's still room for growth.  Just ask the people of Southern Oregon Compass House in Medford. 

Compass House is a "clubhouse" where people with persistent mental illness gather to visit, support each other, and rebuild their lives through a variety of programs and occupations.  Members and staff join us once a month for a segment called Compass Radio, an exploration of what it's truly like to live with mental illness.  This month we hear from Patrick (we only use first names) about coping in a world that still doesn't quite know what to make of people dealing with mental illness.
