A Journal Of Mental Illness: Compass Radio


People get hurt and sick; they fall down and get into car accidents and come down with the flu.  They get our sympathy and--we hope--medical attention. 

With mental illness, the damage is not so obvious, and society is still learning how to help people with mental illness.  Southern Oregon Compass House is part of the mix; it's a clubhouse in Medford for people with persistent mental illness. 

And it partners with JPR for a monthly segment called Compass Radio, a personal story from one of the clubhouse members; this month we hear from Ruby (first names only).  Listen for details of life with mental illness, followed by a de-brief with SOCH staffer Chris Folden.
