Mobile clinic brings healthcare to homeless people on fringe
Stout Street Clinic's new mobile medical center.Colorado Coalition for the Homeless. (Denver, Colo.) People experiencing homelessness move a lot. So, it can be challenging for healthcare providers to keep tabs on clients.
David HeitzI've been in the news business 35 years, spending much of my career in editing roles at local newspapers in Los Angeles, Detroit, and the Quad-Cities of Illinois and Iowa. Upon moving to Denver in 2018, I began experiencing severe mental illness due to several traumatic experiences. I became homeless on the street for about a year before spending time in the state mental hospital. I am living proof that people can rebound from mental illness with proper treatment, even after experiencing homelessness. I consider myself a lucky guy to live in a great place like Denver. I hope my writing reflects the passion I have for living here.
