In recent years the problem of homelessness has escalated into a critical social issue stimulating a wave of concern from the voluntary sector, pressure groups and policy makers. As shopfronts, underpasses and doorways are transformed into hotels for the needy, the shock of homelessness becomes ever more public. These homeless people are the most vulnerable sector of the population to illness and disease and, as they are not part of the 'system', are the most isolated from the welfare services. Homelessness, Health Care and Welfare Provision describes the many difficulties that homeless people have in trying to gain access to adequate health care, and how political decision making has affected the situation, both in Britain and the US. Specific chapters examine the complex issue of mental health and homelessness, responses to single homelessness people with drink-related problems and the particular problems experienced by young single homeless people. The first publication to examine this problem in full, the editors' and contributors' backgrounds reflect a wide range of academic and professional expertise. They include lectures in social policy and mental health, a psychiatrist, housing officer, general practitioner, drink crisis team leader and probation officer. _ This 1992 Methuen Hardback is in Good condition.
