Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

Women in social housing are situated in environments that may impose negative impacts on their psychosocial health. We used an exploratory, sequential, mixed-methods design to identify the met and unmet psychosocial needs and disabilities experienced by this population. Several psychosocial needs of the women went unmet, and disability was significant. Participants identified several areas for how their needs could be addressed. Research and practice implications will be explored.
