by The Marie Trust ( Housing and Homelessness, Mental Health Issues )
The service is for people who:
-are currently homeless or
-have previously been homeless and who continue to experience barriers in accessing mainstream services
We actively work with people who have mental ill health and/or who actively use or depend on substances. The aim of working with people with substance dependence is not to reduce or stop their substance use though change in this area may be a secondary outcome. Similarly, we do not expect to fully resolve mental illness but to enable clients to deal with issues that cause them distress. We, therefore, work in a way that is non-directive and where the client determines what is talked about and worked with. Our approach is one of being accepting of the complexity of need that exists within our client group and attempting to make the service accessible to people who may ordinarily experience barriers in accessing this type of service.
