Mental health care, Poverty simulation

Reporter, Greta Anderson, brought us information about new developments in mental health care in the area. She spoke with Jody Eaton, the CEO of Central Iowa Community Services (CICS), and Krystina Engler, the Director of Crisis Services for Eyerly Ball, which is the mental health clinic that has been contracted to provide the new Mobile Crisis Response Service.

Then the topic changed to an upcoming Poverty Simulation in Story County. Host, Gale Seiler, interviewed Bryan Pates and Mason Adams of Leadership Ames and Bryann Sullivan, an AmeriCorps VISTA worker with United Way. They told what a poverty simulation is and why it is important for the community to understand the obstacles to financial stability that exist, even in our area.
