I just took the First Aid Mental Health training. It had some invaluable concepts for being available to people who are experiencing homelessness. Adverse Childhood Experiences and resiliency are very significant in understanding some of the reasons some people are homeless. There are many things we as a community could do better. We could blame the victim, the lack of affordable housing or the lack of mental health and substance abuse treatments. Or we could all learn how to effectively support people we meet, to find professional and self help next steps to getting out of homelessness.
