According to the 2018 Annual Homeless Assessment Report (AHAR) to Congress, the number of people in unsheltered locations increased for the third year in a row.
According to a National Academies of Sciences study conducted over a 1- to 2-year period, Permanent Supportive Housing effectively maintains housing stability for most people experiencing chronic homelessness.
SAMHSA's Homeless and Housing Resource Network invites you to join the first webinar of a three-part series on Housing First and PSH. The Spotlight Series will help providers of mental health and substance use services improve their practices and address housing instability among individuals and families affected by serious mental illness and substance use disorders (SMI/SUDs).
The first webinar will:
- introduce two evidence-based practices: Housing First and PSH;
- offer essential elements, current research, and information on accessing Housing First and PSH for individuals with mental or substance use disorders to clinicians, peers, and other stakeholders; and
- support SAMHSA’s Strategic Plan to identify and encourage the adoption of evidence-based practices.
