Interview with a Homeless Schizophrenic Man

This is our 3rd interview with people living homeless on the streets. In this interview we hear the story of Jason, a homeless man struggling with schizophrenia and life on the streets. Jason talks about his experience going through the mental health system and how he believes this is a contributing factor to why he and others are homeless. Mental health is an overwhelming cause of homelessness around the world and Jason paints his story for us in this compelling and intimate interview.

Jason's main message is to the people out that there are too quick to judge people who are living on the street. He says that we must treat the homeless as you would want to be treated and that we must not judge anyone until we know where they have come from and what they have been through, "You never know what someone has been through out here".
