Regarding mental health issues; the state needs to do much better creating a space to care for crazies. Expecting people to live on the streets with mental issues is cruel to both the individual and to the public.
Be aware that part of that path is wanting to not be indoors. I'm thinking of Uncle Ray, he hung out at White Bird in the 1970s. Would only come indoors to make watermelon seed jokes to the pregnant women. Wound up rolled up in a carpet beside some sidewalk.

OTOH Archigram addressed homelessness in the 1960s with their Suitaloon and Cushicle.

Cold hearted orb that rules the night, Removes the colours from our sight, Red is grey and yellow white, But we decide which is right, And which is an illusion.
