Letter to the Ontario Premier: Modernizing problem gambling funding

Housing Policy Framework
Housing is a human right and a fundamental component of recovery. Without secure, adequate, accessible and affordable housing, physical and mental health can be significantly compromised. Despite the clear benefits of good housing, many people with mental illness are homeless or live in substandard accommodations often without appropriate support. CAMH supports a social justice approach to public policy that focuses on improving access to, and maintenance of housing that meets people’s diverse needs. This framework reviews the literature on mental health and housing, looks at the challenges people with mental illness face when trying to find and maintain housing, and outlines principles for a comprehensive Canadian approach to housing for people with mental illness.
