Here at the Inlander, we've spent the year looking at mental health care in our region. The stories in the "State of Mind" series have covered issues ranging from how patients are treated at Eastern State Hospital to the difficulty of getting care to people in rural North Idaho to the treatment prisoners receive — or don't — while at the Spokane County Jail.
While the system is fraught with challenges, we also know there are many people in our community with mental illness and living productive, vibrant lives. To tell those stories, we need your help. We'd like to talk to people in Eastern Washington and Northern Idaho who have experienced mental illness and are interested in sharing their stories.
If you are interested in sharing your story with an Inlander reporter for possible publication in our newspaper, please fill out the form below. We'll be in touch shortly.
