About mental health issues

Mental health problems can affect anybody, at any age.

Homelessness and mental health issues

Mental health issues and homelessness can form a vicious cycle which is hard to break out of.  A study by the London homelessness charity St Mungo’s found that 40% of homeless people have a mental health problem.

The ‘revolving door’

Some people with mental health issues face a ‘revolving door’ situation, finding themselves homeless regularly throughout their lifetime. This is usually because they do not have the skills or support that they need to both maintain a home and manage their condition.
