dc.description.abstract Homelessness is a human tragedy that is often associated with mental illness. Maori people are overrepresented in the homeless population and among people experiencing mental illness in New Zealand. Little is known about the mental health experiences of Maori homeless people or the efforts of practitioners who render assistance. The authors explore the experiences of six Maori homeless people and six mental health professionals. Findings highlight the importance of a humanistic and culturally informed approach to addressing the needs of homeless people and restoring their wellness and dignity. en_NZ
