Shortage of accommodation with support: “a Catch 22 situation.”

In the second of her special reports on ITV Wales this week Journalist Mariclare Carey-Jones looked at the shortage of accommodation with support for people with mental ill health.

“It can be a real Catch 22 situation,” said Mariclare. “Poor mental health can mean patients end up in substandard housing and that, in turn, can exacerbate their health issues.”
