Connie Mitchell from IHS talks helping homeless

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Last night, Hawaii News Now aired a powerful half-hour documentary on homelessness called “Prescribing Hope, Trapped on the Streets.”

Reporter Allyson Blair showed us how current law can prevent homeless people with severe mental-illness from being given the treatment they need.

Connie Mitchell from the Institute for Human Services joined us this morning to talk about this issue.
