The prevalence of schizophrenia and other psychotic disorders among homeless people


I figured the rates would be high, but I didn’t expect those numbers.

So many homeless unmedicated people. I know it’s getting bad in my area, and shelters just don’t have the room for everyone. We have pop up tent towns under bridges and overpass, down by the river, and at the lakes.

What do we do? Initialize institutionalization?

The shelters and food banks can’t keep up half the time. People are dying due to exposure. Suffering from madness, alone.

It’s one of my biggest fears, that I will end up like that.

I think homelessness should be enough reason for someone with schizophrenia to be hospitalized
