Fisher, Kevin & Collins, John (eds)Publisher: Routledge
Resource Type: Book
Cx Number: CX9450
Drawing on their extensive background in working with the homeless in East London, the editors look at the subject from different perspectives. There are chapters on mental heath, substance abuse, youth homelessness and an analysis of differing models for providing care. Two of the major themes running though the book are: that the homeless have the right to equal access to health care and that only when their needs for affordable housing are met will their health greatly improve.
