Mental Health and Homelessness in Georgia

There are a reported 10,000 people in Georgia who are homeless and nearly 30% battle mental illness that often goes untreated.  Further, the number of homeless women and children continues to increase daily creating a potential epidemic. The large homeless population in the City of Atlanta alone has made it one of the “neediest” cities in the country as reported by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

A Positive Change is Coming

As a leader in mental and behavioral health services, A Positive You believes these statistics are unacceptable.  We know the challenges faced by people with mental illness are compounded by poverty and other barriers such as unemployment and hospitalization.   We can make positive changes to help the most vulnerable in our community by removing those obstacles and create anchors for stability. We are fully committed to empathetic and respectful service delivery to assist as many people as we can overcome roadblocks and achieve their personal goals with profound success.
