The Crisis of Homelessness and the Noncompliant Mentally Ill in our Society
About this course:
Chronic homelessness and the issue of the unmanaged mentally ill has reached a critical juncture. California’s major cities have become open mental institutions. Negative interactions between the general public and people in the streets are common. While there is a frantic push for affordable housing and homeless outreach, the situation will not be managed anytime soon. Dr. Snibbe, who worked as a psychologist for ten years in homeless outreach—including stints with Project 50 and LAC USC Medical Center ER Program—addresses the question of how to assist the homeless and chronic mentally ill who refuse placement.
