DULUTH — Jayme Closs will face an extended, difficult challenge as she recovers from a horrifying three-month ordeal, mental health experts say. “She’s not only been through the terrible horror of losing her parents, but by such a tragic means,” said Heather Rose-Carlson, a psychologist at Northland Psychological Services in Duluth who specializes in critical incidents. “To also being kidnapped, and we don’t know what other experiences she’s had over the last three months. So her life as she knows it is completely changed.”
DULUTH - Minnesota’s “lackluster performance” is contrasted with Wisconsin’s “notable improvement” in a report released Wednesday about policies affecting people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The Case for Inclusion 2019 report from the ANCOR Foundation and United Cerebral Palsy cited “stagnant or declining investment in state programs” as the reason Minnesota dropped to 21st place among the 50 states after being ranked 7th in the Case for Inclusion 2016 report.
