Charity’s fears for street homeless

St Mungo’s is seeking youth workers’ views on mental health and homelessness for a report. It said the proportion of homeless people with mental health problems remain static, at around a third, despite a reduction in the number of street homeless in the past decade, and warned the government would fail to hit its target of no rough sleepers by 2012 if it didn’t focus more on the link between mental health and homelessness.
