Is Homelessness Self Inflicted?


Do you feel that homelessness is self inflicted or is it a several combination of external factors?

I don't think it's self inflicted. It's usually several factors that create it. Eg. Depression, bereavement or mental health issues, leading to addiction, leading to job loss & losing friends & family, which ultimately leaves them with no one and nowhere to go. However, there are failures in the system that cause this. If depression is diagnosed and treated properly then the chain that leads to homelessness wouldn't exist for that individual. Also many homeless people grew up in care. Having no close relatives and a bad childhood makes the chain more likely to occur, although it can happen to anyone.
