Homeless Hub - Mental Health

Homelessness, in turn, amplifies poor mental health. The stress of experiencing homelessness may exacerbate previous mental illness and encourage anxiety, fear, depression, sleeplessness, and substance use.

The needs of people with mental illness who experience homelessness are similar to those without mental illnesses: physical safety, education, transportation, affordable housing, and affordable medical and dental treatment.

When providing care to those experiencing homelessness, it is essential to create a non-threatening and supportive atmosphere, address basic needs (e.g., food and shelter), and provide accessible care.
