Mental Health Professionals
Our mental health workers typically work within a multi-agency rough sleeper intervention team ensuring early intervention for the most vulnerable and most at risk of entrenched homelessness.
“Mental health and homelessness can be a vicious circle, with homelessness causing mental health problems, and mental health problems often being the reason people become homeless. Sadly, homeless people can face considerable barriers in terms of accessing the mental health services that could support them. Many homeless people live with multiple and complex needs; this, combined with other factors such as the lack of a fixed address and even loss of confidence and self-esteem, can make it impossible for them to use traditional support systems”.
