Shuttering Taunton State Hospital

Earlier this month, the state announced the closure of Taunton State Hospital at the end of 2012. This will leave Southeastern Massachusetts with no inpatient beds for those who need mental health care, according to mental health advocates. Some of the patients at Taunton State will be moved to distant facilities in Worcester and Tewksbury, an hours-long drive for those who live on the Cape and Islands. Local politicians and mental health advocates who oppose the closing are lobbying Governor Patrick to keep the hospital open. We look at what the closure means for families and individuals in the southeastern Massachusetts who need access to mental health care.

GUESTS:
  Laurie Martinelli, executive director of the Massachusetts branch of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI)
  Marcia Fowler, commisioner of the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health
