Petition Increase mental health support for those affected by homelessness

We want the Government to provide funding for bespoke NHS mental health services specifically for those people affected by homelessness.

More details

We also want the Government to provide additional funding for mental health charities to increase the support they offer to those affected by homelessness.

Many homeless people do not receive the help they require to get themselves out of their situations. Some charities refusing to help if a person is struggling with addiction. This leads to many homeless people turning to the NHS, including A&E services, for support. Around half of homeless people suffer from mental health issues, depression and anxiety being the most common. Our proposal could reduce demand on A&E wait times and, in the long run, help reduce the number of people affected by homelessness.
