Homelessness is so much more than providing a roof over someone’s head; it must be much more holistic.  Mental health issued and drug and alcohol dependences are so often at the heart of preventing people from moving to a more permanent place to call home.  At present in Northern Ireland Ireland the health service struggles with limited resources, to provide the necessary support and services for people who are homeless and with the help of the dual diagnosis practitioners, we hope to support people in moving towards better and more positive future.
