As per a Canadian study, it has been revealed that if people suffering from mental illness are moved into safe and clean housing, then they become capable of solving their problems. In order to test the above given statement, the study authors have subsidized 1,000 homes for vulnerable people in five different cities in Canada.
Louise Bradley, who is the president of Mental Health Commission of Canada, said that they will be conducting the experiment for four years and will comparing the level of improvement with other 1,000 mentally ill patients, who will not be moved to subsidized housing. In addition, it has also been found that the study will be focusing on different aspects of the problem.
In addition, it has also been found that a lot of efforts are being done to change the mind set of Canadians towards mental illness, so that they can come forth and support them in each and every possible way.
“They’re looking at the best ways of helping Canada’s most vulnerable population. The Housing First philosophy is finally getting it right”, said Bradley.
Moving to a nice and safe housing will help mentally ill people feel that there is nothing much to worry about and all the problems can be solved out, said Bradley.
