Mental Health Care Revamped: Compass House

We've come a long way since the days when mentally ill people were "warehoused" in huge state mental hospitals.

But we're still looking for the solutions that work best for each community. 

Later this year, Medford will become home to Compass House, a mental health facility that is operated jointly by staff and clients.

In fact, the clients are referred to as "members" in a "clubhouse" concept. 

We visit with a rep from Jackson County Mental Health about the plans for Compass House, and what it will take to get the center open.
