    Description: Mental illness and homelessness are inextricably tied together in a way that has created a costly problem which profoundly affects both individuals and society. To begin to eradicate this problem, the severity and complexity must be understood by considering the many contributing factors to both mental illness and homelessness. Care must be individualized to fit each person’s unique situation, and continuity of care is absolutely critical. This problem has ramifications for many disciplines such as healthcare, social work, corrections, and housing, but stigma in the general population must also be addressed if progress is to be made.
