    Sheppard Pratt taps students' perspective on body image
    "Like a Tree, My Body is…" With those words, a poster campaign for eating disorders at Sheppard Pratt began six years ago and continues today, providing a creative and informative way to reach out to youth. "It's unique because it is art-based,"...
  • Discrimination in Ruxton

    Discrimination in Ruxton
    Community meetings don't usually attract the disinterested or curious. The average person has a busy enough schedule, so such events tend to be packed with vocal opponents of whatever is being proposed. At least that's the kindest explanation available...
  • Sun mischaracterizes Ruxton rehab house issue

    The Sun once again pulls out all the stops from its lofty editorial perch to totally mischaracterize issues with Sheppard Pratt locating a half-way house in Ruxton ("Discrimination in Ruxton," April 25). In the process, it also fails to address the very...
  • A teachable moment in Ruxton

    A teachable moment in Ruxton
    Sheppard Pratt's announcement of plans to purchase a residence in Ruxton, near our flagship campus in Towson, has provoked an uproar from a segment of homeowners in this neighborhood. The residence, which will be licensed as a group home, is designed as a...
  • The folly of Sheppard Pratt's designs in Ruxton

    As a resident of Ruxton, I would gladly support Sheppard Pratt in having a residential rehabilitation group home for affluent clients with mental health issues in my neighborhood ("Discrimination in Ruxton," April 25). What is at issue is the site...
  • Ruxton opposes commercial use, not mental health treatment

    While I am disappointed in Monday's Baltimore Sun Editorial "Discrimination in Ruxton" (April 25) I am not surprised. How easy for The Sun's editorial board to paint Ruxton residents as "hysterical, intolerant, delusional, arrogant and shameful."...
  • Sheppard Pratt's Ruxton plan shows fault of federal law

    The editorial about Sheppard Pratt's plans to put a rehab home in Ruxton shows The Sun doesn't get it ("Discrimination in Ruxton," April 25). This is not about mental health at all. It is about a greedy corporate giant imposing it's will on a community...
  • Ruxton is not 'intolerant'

    Your editorial regarding Sheppard Pratt's planned rehab facility in Ruxton is off-base in many ways but two points especially should be made clear ("Discrimination in Ruxton," April 25): First, the main issue surrounding the proposed facility is money,...
  • Sheppard Pratt 'retreat' should be subject to commercial zoning laws

    In the past few weeks The Baltimore Sun has published several articles in which the neighbors of a proposed Sheppard Pratt facility known as "The Retreat" have been much maligned for their opposition. The Board of the Ruxton-Riderwood-Lake Roland Area...
  • No retreat in Ruxton

    No retreat in Ruxton
    Sheppard Pratt's recent surprise announcement to put what the hospital calls an "opulent" treatment center for "affluent" individuals with substance abuse and mental health concerns in a dense lane of modest homes in Ruxton has been a disaster. Sheppard...
  • Sheppard Pratt's teachable moment in Ruxton

    The situation in Ruxton is full of complexities ("Discrimination in Ruxton," April 25). If representatives of Sheppard Pratt Health System are to be believed, Ruxton residents are a bunch of elitist snobs with no moral standing. In reality, the personal...
  • Realtors are bound by the law, ethics in Ruxton and elsewhere

    In light of community concerns over Sheppard Pratt Health System's purchase of a home in Ruxton for use as a rehabilitation facility for patients recovering from a mental illness ("Ruxton ready to fight over rehab home," April 22), we are writing on...
