Posted:

DES MOINES (KWWL) - We could know this week if any of Iowa's four mental health facilities will be shut down. A report from the the Iowa Department of Human Services is expected sometime this week. That could mean hundreds of layoffs for Iowans.  Independence stands to lose nearly 400 jobs, Cherokee could see 255 jobs lost, while Clarinda and Mt. Pleasant could see around 200 jobs cut.
