This report presents an overview of the use of mental health services provided in four Crisis Skylight services in Birmingham, London, Newcastle and Oxford. The specific focus of the report is the role of four mental health coordinators, whose role in Skylight services has been supported by the Department of Health. The mental health coordinators have enhanced access to health and social services, improved access to counselling and also assisted the social integration of single homeless people with mental health problems. The coordinators have also provided significant direct support, in the form of one-to-one support sessions, group based activities and service user forums to provide direct feedback about services.
