Centre for Mental Health, June 2016

This report reviews evidence about supported housing services for people with mental health problems in England.

People experiencing mental health problems are also more likely than average to experience difficulties with accommodation, e.g. rent or mortgage difficulties, living in deprived neighbourhoods and experiencing isolation. The report finds that there is very limited evidence about what kinds of support are most effective for people with mental health problems, but that most people prefer help in their own homes to being in sheltered or transitional accommodation.
