Dual-Diagnosis Homelessness

Our research on co-occurring disorders and homelessness focuses specifically on two things: Understanding more about the prevalence of homelessness and treatment of mental illness and addiction among Veterans, and developing culturally sensitive treatments for diverse youth and adolescents. Specifically, we examine what services homeless Veterans utilize, what programs are most effective, how to best identify Veterans who are at-risk of homelessness, the development of interventions to improve housing stability and how to better engage homeless Veterans with complex and multifaceted clinical needs. We also seek to identify the factors that predict homelessness among Veterans and better understand the interchange between mental health comorbidities, homelessness and addiction among homeless Veterans. In addition, our goal is to understand how to best design culturally sensitive therapeutic techniques and treatments.
