Homelessness and Mental Illness

Exploring the Lived Experience in India

«

“Homelessness is related to various psychiatric disorders and often it is not clear what comes first. Increasing our understanding through review and research Dr Bhattacharya comes up with some innovative ideas. The book will be of major interest to clinicians and NGOs but, more importantly, to policymakers. Looking after vulnerable individuals is the first task of any society, and this book contributes in a major way to that debate and discussion.”

Dinesh Bhugra, Professor Emeritus, Mental Health & Cultural Diversity, Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology & Neuroscience, Kings College, London

“Bhattacharya's work deep dives into complex problems around homelessness and mental illness. Lived experience contributes to diverse narratives, textured and layered with unique insights. The author has attempted to straddle multiple social worlds that contribute to the social imagination around 'madness' and being 'homed' or 'homeless'. Limited scholarly work in this field has emerged from the Global South, and I congratulate her for taking the lead on this front.”

Vandana Gopikumar, Co-Founder, The Banyan & The Banyan Academy of Leadership in Mental Health (BALM)

“The journey of mind champions from despair to hope is put forth by Dr Bhattacharya in " Homelessness and Mental Illness: Exploring the Lived Experience in India" in a compelling style which does not allow us to invisibilise the homeless persons with psychosocial disability on the streets anymore.”

Sarbani Das Roy, Co-Founder and Secretary, Iswar Sankalpa
