Letters to the editor on Breakthrough Club, survivors of suicide, health savings accounts, substandard plans, political hit job, JFK anniversary

I was shocked and deeply dismayed upon reading “Without funds, Breakthrough Club may close” (Nov. 17 Eagle). I am an assistant professor at Newman University who has been supervising occupational therapy student interns at the Breakthrough Club for more than 15 years and has spent more than a thousand hours on site. The job that this organization does – efficiently and effectively – in maintaining and improving the lives of hundreds of Wichitans living with severe and persistent mental illness is, frankly, phenomenal.
