This week on Points North, we dive into how the state is trying to help underpaid and overworked court-appointed attorneys. Plus a former employee of the Traverse City State Hospital reflects on 30 years on the job.

Traverse City State Hospital

Oct 7, 2009

Twenty years ago this month, the State of Michigan locked the doors of the Traverse City Regional Psychiatric Hospital.

 At any one time, the State Hospital was home to thousands of patients and steady work for hundreds of employees.

On the next Points North here on Interlochen Public Radio, we'll take a tour of the building with some former employees.

And we'll hear former patients.

 And we'll learn about the impact this landmark property continues to have across Northern Michigan.

 That's Points North on Interlochen Public Radio.
