Tackling issues around homelessness
There is no health without mental health – David Satcher
Many people today suffer from the unseen condition of mental illness.
This term covers many symptoms and problems in dealing with everyday life.
Mental illness –for the homeless and vulnerable- can often represent a cycle
with the condition being both the cause and the stimulus for an ever-worsening situation.
ETHOS sees homelessness and poverty as symptoms of an underlying cause;
treatment at the root of the matter often prevents the re-occurrence of personal and social decline.
How We Help
It Starts With the Will to Make a Difference
At ETHOS we aim to seek out all available help and support for anyone in need
and facilitate the introduction and on-going relationships between the recipient and the services available.
Life doesn’t always play fair. Situations beyond our control can take over and what was once a pleasant and joyful journey can change in an instant. Many of us have the support and encouragement of friends and family; people that will understand and support us. Others don’t.
Some of us feel alienated and alone; others turn inward, self-medicate or drift off into a life of profound destitution, avoiding society as if outcast.
It’s clear that not all these coping methods are effective, sometimes we need someone to take a look at the root problems that got us into the situation in the first place; someone that can shed an objective yet compassionate view on things.
At ETHOS we don’t judge vulnerability on a scale of severity –
if you’re vulnerable, we’re here to help.
