Attorney Carolyn Wolf wrote a spot-on article for Psychology Today last week that highlighted the drastic need for more transitional housing for those taking on their mental health challenges. The story is no different in Georgia, where personal care homes or other housing, licensed and unlicensed, have become the de facto landing spots for these men and women, and they lack the psychiatric connections and services that more integrative housing provides. This is especially critical at a time when these individuals need close support that encourages their engaging in mental health services, rather than languishing in housing that offers none of this support.
