Letter to the Editor: Why so many ‘clients’ here?

Published on September 12, 2018 8:34AM

Interesting guest column by Chantay Jett about the need for a combined mental health care facility due to the numbers of clients in the community.

I may be misinformed about why we have so many clients in “God’s country.” I had been told many years ago that Union County has no facilities, so the state hospital and other hospitals discharge their clients into Wallowa County.

Also the preponderance of HUD housing allows these clients to transition into their own homes and apartments.
