Kentucky rally to highlight need for disability services

Christiana Obey says Bridgehaven, a center that provides help for mentally ill people, saved her life.

More than 1,000 people will gather today on behalf of an estimated 874,000 Kentuckians with disabilities as the governor asks agencies to cut up to 12% from their budgets at a time when disability services are needed more than ever. "I think people are really scared," said Sheila Schuster, executive director of the Kentucky Mental Health Coalition. "There is widespread anxiety." The Courier-Journal (Louisville, Ky.)
