Affordable housing for the mentally ill

The Federal Government should increase the funding for provincial governments and non-profit groups to provide housing for the mentally ill.

Two Models

Two models of recovery have been developed: the Psychosocial Rehabilitation Model and the Empowerment Model. The first arose within the professional community, while the second has largely come from the consumer advocacy movement. Although the two models are similar in some respects, there are also important differences. Often used interchangeably by planners, depending on how they are applied the philosophical differences between the models can result in the development of different approaches in service delivery.
