Medical Records From Shuttered Mental Health Clinic Found Dumped In West Englewood Alley

Tara Molina reports:

 Hundreds of pieces of paper containing people’s most sensitive information were found dumped in an alley.

The papers were mental health records from a South Side center that closed years ago. CBS 2’s Tara Molina worked Tuesday to determine how they ended up on the street.


We found the documents are from the Community Mental Health Council – a group of clinics that closed in 2012 when they lost state funding after serving the South Side of Chicago for 37 years.

Their main building at 8704 S. Constance Ave. in the Calumet Heights neighborhood is now locked up, with no sign of anyone. And it is located miles away from where the patients’ information ended up.
