Roughly a quarter of the population around the world will experience some form of mental illness at some point.  Yet society still struggles to comprehend diseases that affect the mind and not the body. 

Southern Oregon Compass House in Medford provides a safe space for people with persistent mental illness.  Our monthly visits in Compass Radio provide us with a first-person story of coping with mental illness and its associated challenges.  Listen to Karen's story--our second visit, and a debrief with SOCH Executive Director Elizabeth Hazlewood.
