Housing and Services for the Mentally Ill

Many people become mentally ill or otherwise messed up sometime in their lives. I myself have a schizophrenic cousin (adopted).

As an enlightened people, we should acknowledge this and provide for them.

Mentally ill people need housing and services.

Unfortunately, the Not in my backyard “Nimby” crowd would be against hosting our fellow ill humans nearby. Therefore a provision for housing and services in the community should be codified into law that applies to each community.

Housing may be expensive but some reasonably priced housing and places to deliver services could be constructed out of surplus containers.

Dear Legislators – please codify a provision for housing and services into municipal code. You may choose a number of ways to fund this.

It’s in our children and grandchildren’s interest so It’s the right thing to do.

Note I am talking about a hand up, not a handout. However, food or a warm coat might certainly be handed out to a fellow human where it might make a difference.
