Carl strayed into Bethesda the same February evening I wandered into town as a homeless derelict. He was 18, a mentally troubled patient from Springfield State Hospital. He was a lost soul whose path eventually and inevitably met mine at the Bethesda Community Crisis Center, an all-purpose receptacle for Montgomery County's wounded and dispossessed.

In the seventh installment of his "Down & Out" series for The Washington Post, Neil Henry writes about the night he spent at the Bethesda Community Crisis Center and Carl, a young man he met there.
