For those facing mental health challenges, the lack of access and support mean a higher risk of falling into poverty.
Navigating social services and community resource systems can be difficult and overwhelming, especially for someone who is already experiencing the stressors of poverty. It can be challenging to know what help is available, and how to access it.
