Chicago group brings Mobile Mental Health bus to Black, Latino residents

CHICAGO (CBS) – In a time of crisis, admitting that you need help to manage your mental health is often the first step, but from there, without knowing where to go or who to contact, that is often where things stop.

A community group in the Austin neighborhood is working to eliminate those hurdles of going out to find resources, by pulling right up to the people in need.

On a piece of land on Chicago’s West Side, the community group BUILD Inc. has done just that.

“We’ve got a whole new building,” said David Rodriguez, a BUILD member. “We’ve got a second floor finally.”

CBS 2 met the staff who will spend parts of their day here when the new space at Harrison and Laramie, right off the Eisenhower, opens to its Austin neighbors next month.
