There are a number of program throughout the city of Cleveland that provide special support to people trying to work while they deal with with mental illness. One of these is a woodshop perched on the corner of West 25th Street. It's run by Spectrum of Support Services. Near West Woodworks employs up to twenty five people with mental illness, helping them develop job and social skills to get back on track. We visited Near West Woodworks and spoke to clients about their lives, work, and the subtleties of using a staple gun. (Special thanks to ideastream intern Liz Walker for production work on this story.)
