Engage ICT Panelists Discuss Homelessness and Mental Health in Wichita

KMUW's Engage ICT brought together a panel of local experts on February 15 to answer community questions.

  • Lacey Cruse, Sedgwick County Commissioner
  • Brenda Dietzman, Wayfinder Consulting
  • Regina Hafner, Comcare
  • Jami Scott, Salvation Army
  • Bernestine Williams, National Alliance on Mental Illness - Wichita

Here is the recorded conversation:
