HERE’S HOW THE AUTHORS DESCRIBE THIS INFOGRAPHIC:
Housing improves quality of life and is a key component of recovery for people with mental illness. Substandard and unaffordable housing is associated with infectious diseases, chronic illnesses, respiratory infections, asthma, poor nutrition, and mental illness. Affordable and supportive housing reduces hospitalizations, psychiatric symptoms, and substance use, while increasing freedom, privacy, dignity, and safety.
