This illustration captures the difficult, uncertain and often fragmented and dis-empowering transition from homelessness to stable housing – the foundation for dignified healthy lives. Persons who are homeless and have a mental illness often experience persistent health and social inequalities severely affecting their life chances. Our research explores the role of housing and social services in empowering those individuals to achieve recovery and realise their full potential as active citizens.
