Short-term social housing - what strategies can be implemented?

Our mental health service bed capacity is reduced by approximately 30 percent due to homelessness. This has flow on effects to the community via access to appropriate care. What short term strategies can be implemented to target homelessness for consumers with mental health issues?

The Andrews State Government has funded this Project in order to find solutions to these critical needs. 

The City and our town’s support and housing services are cognisant of the perpetuating nature, or cycle, that is attributed to lack of secure, affordable accommodation on the psycho-social, economic and physical needs of the most excluded people in society.

It is hoped that both short terms solutions can be found by the whole of community (Government, Business and Citizens) working together to challenge and advocate; and highlighted as an action in the final plan.
