Specialist multidisciplinary teams for homeless mentally ill people provide an essential safety net for those who have fallen out of the wider mental health care system. They offer distinct advantages in terms of their capacity to work across traditional geographical and bureaucratic barriers, to take the longer-term view of the task of engagement, and to bring together the multiple strands of care across different provider agencies. Introduced as a temporary measure over a decade ago, they are still with us and likely to remain a permanent fixture of urban mental health care.
