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
