Mental illness among the homeless

Oct 8, 2013

The latest report on homelessness in Cincinnati by The Partnership Center found that 34% of the city’s adult homeless population suffers some form of mental illness. Helping these individuals is a challenge for local service agencies. Psychiatrist and Chief Medical Officer of Greater Cincinnati Behavioral Health Services (GCB), Dr. Tracey Skale, GCB Homeless Services Manager Debbie Demarcus, and Strategies to End Homelessness Executive Director Kevin Finn discuss treating mental health issues among our homeless population.
