County tries to cope with its mentally ill



WHITTIER – Delia Rodriguez can see dead people.

A dead man wanders a local park in a dark suit and smiles at Rodriguez.

Another walks the park dragging his feet, and she feels an evil presence when she sees him.

“Spirits started following me when I was in college and it doesn’t go away,” said Rodriguez, 35. “I thought maybe if I talk to these dead people and find out what they want, they’ll go away.”

Rodriguez said she has been diagnosed with schizophrenia and is receiving treatment through Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health’s Telecare Corp. Homeless Outreach Program in Norwalk.
