Europa of  Citizens : 

Dignity  and  Well-being

All persons have the RIGHT to the best available mental health care, which shall be part of the health  and social care system.              NU Resolution 46/119,1.1

  The stigma  and  discrimination, related to the mental disease, are long-lasting.          Year of Equal  Opportunity  2007

Homelessness is an affront to every value that we assign to the concept of CITIZENSHIP. Homeless, are among the most marginalised in our communities                                                          O’Sullivan IRL Minister 

When the person has lost everything, and also hope on the future, them does not remain other that to survival on the street where he will be: without rights
without  HOPE - HOME - HEALT

  These persons remain as a constant challenge and a troubling  sign not only
of the economic crisis, but also of values crisis which underpin our democracies - values such as the social cohesion, the solidarity based on respect of individual rights, the equitable access to resources and services.
