For 50 years, the now-defunct Columbus Area Integrated Health Services served the near east side of Columbus and its largely African-American community.

When the agency closed shop in the spring, hundreds of people who had relied on its services were left with few options. Two other agencies have joined forces to fill the void, but the impact illustrates a historic disparity in mental health services for black people. 

Today on All Sides, we talk about the history and how Columbus organizations are working to address the problem of disparities in mental health services.
