This paper describes a model of outreach predicated on developing a trusting, meaningful relationship between the outreach worker and the homeless person with mental illness.
We describe five common tasks inherent in this model of outreach (establishing contact and credibility, identifying people with mental illness, engaging clients, conducting assessments and treatment planning, and providing ongoing service).
Other issues discussed include :
(a) Responding to dependency needs and promoting autonomy ;
(b) setting limits while maintaining flexibility ;
(c) resistance to mental health treatment and follow-up service options.
