Understanding Homelessness & mental health

This Housing LIN Briefing No24 is intended primarily for providers of mental health services but is also relevant to providers of accommodation and support services, and health and social care commissioners.

It describes some of the difficulties faced by:

  • people with mental health problems who are homeless or living in insecure accommodation
  • the mental health services with whom they are in contact and suggests ways of ensuring appropriate care and support can be delivered.
