Fighting stigma and raising awareness around mental illness and substance use disorders is linked to Monarch’s work to create homes for the homeless.
NJ Counts 2015 found that 42% of homeless persons reported having some type of disability. The most common disabilities included mental health issues and substance abuse disorders. Among disabled adults, 56% reported mental health issues making it the most prevalent disability.
