Mental Illness is just that, an illness, just like diabetes, heart disease, etc. It’s usually chronic and requires a lifetime of treatment and support. People with mental illness suffer greatly and deserve empathy and support just like anyone else who is struggling.
As an Iffley Road resident, I love the diversity and character of my neighborhood. I love talking with my neighbors and taking long walks in Franklin Park. I feel that the residents of the proposed redevelopment of the Barbara McInnis house would add to the diversity and value of our neighborhood. I welcome them and look forward to being a good neighbor.
