During the past decade, understanding of people who are homeless and have severe mental illness has increased due to researchers who have documented the range of needs and devised new methods for understanding this population. Clinicians have developed an understanding of how difficult and complex effectively treating this population can be, and policymakers have become increasingly aware of the barriers to developing services and housing. This article addresses the progress-to-date in research, the evolution of new service approaches, and the development of Federal, State, and local policies to meet the assessment needs of people who are homeless and mentally ill. Many challenges still remain and they are also considered in this article.
