Safe, secure, and affordable housing is something we all deserve. Homeless is not a type of person. It can happen to anyone but for those struggling with their mental health; homelessness is a real threat and is often a harsh reality. People living with a mental illness stay homeless for longer, have less connections to services and outreach workers and are more likely to be victims of crime. Supportive housing options that include developing life skills, adherence to medication and wellness plans all contribute to a reduction in psychiatric symptoms. We all deserve a place to live and call home.
