Prioritizing mental health

Stigma of Mental Health and Homelessness. Earlier this week as part of my lent Contemplation I was thinking about the stigma of homelessness. I mainly focused on persepective that family problems either death of parents, having to leave care or relationship breakdowns leaving someone isolated. However, mental health issues can also lead to homelessness if mental health issues cause relationship issues, prevent people working so lose home or mental health issues can lead to drug use and in turn homelessness. Therefore it is important that there is no stigma to asking for mental health issues or drug use issues as not asking for help can mean the problem become bigger.
