Abstract (summary)
Our study, a narrative inquiry into the experiences of at risk youth who experience precarious housing situations and mental health needs, is a collaborative conceptualization among representatives of iHuman staff, youths and researchers. Key findings relate to: the number of distinct and disconnected services youth have had contact with in their lives; the life situations and events that at risk youth have experienced over time; their feelings and emotions on what it is like to be homeless; as well as the youths’ suggestions and recommendations for services they deem important for themselves and future generations.
