Abstract or Summary
  • Many people around the world suffer from a mental illness, and too few receive the help they need. Mental illness is especially prevalent among the homeless. Homelessness is represented in all ages, ethnicities, and genders, and is especially represented among first world countries such as the United States and Spain. These two countries provide a unique opportunity to assess how the United States and Spain address mental illness and homelessness based upon the differences in the social structures of both countries. Homelessness affects those that are living without a home, however, it is a public health and social issue as well. It is also important to analyze this problem to help those that are suffering, and to evaluate the extent to which the United States’ and Spain’s national policies are addressing mental health and homelessness economically, socially, and humanely. Key Words: homeless, mental illness, stigma, incarceration, national policy
