Compass Radio Opens Eyes To Mental Illness


We've excised some of the more derogatory names for people with mental illness from our societal vocabulary.  But that doesn't mean we're any more understanding of the illnesses or the people they affect. 

Once a month we get an education from a regular segment called Compass Radio.  It features members of Southern Oregon Compass House in Medford telling their personal stories of coping with mental illness. 

This month we hear Tia's story of living with PTSD from childhood trauma, and how it continued to affect her life. Listen for some insight into diseases that affect the mind.
