Mental Health and Social Housing

Increasingly, tenants living in social housing are significantly more likely to live with mental illness or substance use disorders and have histories of trauma than persons living in market rent units or housing that they own. Frequently, tenants who experience these health conditions report that they do not receive the necessary supports to be as healthy as they could be. This study focuses on identifying what tenants need from their perspectives, as well as the perspectives of social housing and community health and social care service providers. Further, we seek to design solutions to address gaps in existing research and community services. Click on the links below to learn more:
