A Literature review on housing persons with a severe mental illness, with and without co-occurring substance abuse.

This review of the literature sought out examples of “best practices” in housing persons with a persistent mental illness. The term ‘best practices’ is synonymous with ‘evidence based practices’ and refers to evidence-based practices, that is, those that have been proven to be effective. While there is still discussion and some debate about different housing models, the best practice consensus is for a supported housing approach. Best practices also lead to community integration.
