Health and Well-Being of First Place-Involved Youth

This brief is the fourth in the series commissioned by the John T. Gorman Foundation and focuses on the health and well-being of youth in the study. It follows briefs that describe First Place participants’ experiences with housing stability, employment, and education. The first three briefs showed that factors related to health and well-being influence the extent to which youth experiencing homelessness can achieve stability. This brief provides additional information on the mental health and well-being of study youth and how they affect outcomes in other domains. *JTGF-funded
