Hi there,

I appreciate the prompt response. I know for a fact that allegations of abuse have been brought to the attention of Castlewood staff between 2000 and 2016. Should I interpret your response as indicating that Castlewood staff, despite being mandated reporters of abuse, never informed the appropriate agency or agencies of the allegations? Is there another agency who may have the records I am looking for? To be clear: you conducted a search for records and found nothing, or has my request been rejected altogether?

Thank you,
Evan

Mr. Anderson:

The records you seek may be available through the Missouri Department of Mental Health, as the facility you are inquiring about is a treatment facility. The main phone number for that department is 573.751.4122. Thank you.
