To create a virtual community for clinicians, policymakers, and researchers working with homeless people who have a mental illness, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration has launched a new Web site.

The Homelessness Resource Center Web site is designed to facilitate education and communication among those who work with or conduct research involving people who are homeless and have mental health and substance abuse problems.

Features on the site include information from caseworkers about how to reach out to the homeless, get medical care for homeless people, and obtain housing for them. It also has a section discussing recovery-oriented mental health services.

In addition, the Web site lists facts about homelessness in different populations, such as children, adolescents, and ethnic and racial minorities, for example. There is also information about federal programs for homeless people and supportive housing programs.

The new site "provides a platform for creating an interactive community of providers, consumers, policymakers, researchers, and public agencies at federal, state, and local levels working to prevent and end homelessness," said SAMHSA Administrator Terry Cline, Ph.D., in a press release announcing the new Web site.

The Homelessness Resource Center Web site can be accessed at<www.homeless.samhsa.gov>.
