Header: Research Methods 1 Research Methods Jackie Gifford Adam Quinn Research Methods in Social Work Practice 08/18/21 Header: Research Methods 1 Research Methods Times are complex, and many people find themselves homeless for one reason and seek help from shelters that surround them or community-based centers. People who are experiencing homelessness get typically concentrated in large cities or suburban areas. Governments must work out how to end homelessness in their countries (Keet et al., 2019). However, aside from lack of basic needs, homeless individuals deal with mental illness problems, and the economic situation they are in make matters even worse. In the city of Erikson, about four million has gotten allocated to provide mental healthcare services to homeless individuals. Research Question The research question for this paper is how best can countries plan for mental services among homeless individuals? According to Adair et al. (2016), adults ages, 65years and above have a higher prevalence of problems such as unmet needs for substance abuse and mental disorder treatment. Therefore, the provision of housing to homeless individuals can help prevent the exacerbation of substance use and mental disorders. On the other hand, those individuals who have already fallen prey to the challenge require mental services that will assist them in getting better (Keet et al., 2019). Some of the questions that can get asked to assist in finding enough information concerning the matter include; what is the number of homeless people? How many of homeless people suffer mental health challenges? Do they receive any medical services? What are the costs they have to undergoes? What are the significant issues they face being both mentally ill and homeless? These questions will essentially help find the necessary information to point out the area that can get fixed. Participants Header: Research Methods 1 In this paper, the number of required participants includes a pool of 100 homeless individuals within the city. Additionally, the two homeless shelters that seek to provide them with food and a roof over their heads will have two volunteers in the research. The two volunteers from the shelter will provide information regarding the number of homeless individuals that stream in their centers and what they do to help those that have mental challenges. Additionally, enough information will be needed to confirm whether the shelters can also be equipped with small medical rooms to cater to mentally ill patients. Therefore, some 102 participants will be required to get the data necessary for this study. The chosen pool is essential to get in-depth information from the homeless people and those who spare their time to help them get the simple stuff such as food and a warm bed for the night. Data This study will primarily focus on qualitative data that describes the issue of the problem and gets collected through interviews and questionnaires. In this case, I will use questionnaires on the 100 homeless individuals of different ages to ensure that the larger population gets represented. The questions will be simple and easy to understand to ensure that even those participants who will be old can participate. Additionally, two individuals will be present at the centers to ensure that they can assist the participants where need be. The participants will be made aware that any information they will provide in the questionnaires will not require any personal details and will get used for academic purposes only (Adair et al., 2016). Additionally, other resourceful data will get used from other researchers’ literature papers on the same topic. The literature reviewed papers will seek to offer support to this paper and add more information. Data Collection Header: Research Methods 1 The data will get collected through interviews for the two participants working at the shelter homes. The tool selected is appropriate for the two individuals because they have a tight working schedule and can manage to spare two hours of their time for an interview. The interview will get recorded, and the same information will later get transferred to word documents. The participants will be made aware that any information they offer will not get used to incriminate them. The data will get used for academic purposes to answer the research question (Keet et al., 2019). Additionally, considering that they come across many homeless individuals and dealing with mental challenges, an interview will be the best decision to get immediate feedback on the challenges they have. However, the homeless individuals who will be 100 participants will require to give the information on questionnaires that will be simple and easy to understand. Data Interpretation The data that will get collected will get interpreted in graphs and tables. Additionally, the questionnaires will require re-evaluation to ensure that those who do not get fully completed get eliminated. However, most questionnaires that do not get completed results from the participant do not fully understand what gets required. Therefore, two individuals who are part of the research tea will be present during the process to ensure that they can help explain to the participants in case of any challenge. The recorder with the two participants’ interviews will also be decoded to ensure that any present information is noted down. Additionally, the data collected will analyze the situation and give feedback on how best to offer mental services among homeless individuals. Audience and Medium The data gathered through this research will be resourceful to governments seeking ways to offer homeless individuals with medical facilities. The study will outline the significant Header: Research Methods 1 challenge they face, an eye-opener for the public sector. On the other hand, the data will be presented in graphs and tables that will be easily interpreted. More so, medical facilities seeking ways to give back to the community that they serve will get enlightened by this study. The shelters that offer homeless people assistance will also get more support from the district. Homeless individuals are also humans who can get their lives back together with a bit of help from the community. Header: Research Methods 1 References Adair, C. E., Kopp, B., Distasio, J., Hwang, S.

Running Head: LITERATURE REVIEW OF BEST PRACTICES Literature Review of Best Practices Jackie Gifford Capella University Research In Social Work Practice Adam Quinn 08/10/2021 1 2 Literature Review of Best Practices Arguably, homeless individuals often deal with mental illness problems, and the economic situation worsens the situation. An individual cannot exit from homelessness individually, and the combination of mental illness and homelessness is a vicious cycle that cannot be broken and require evidence-based interventions. The allocation of over 4 million by the city of Erikson is meant to provide mental health services to the homeless. Still, the model can only be effective if evidence-based practices are used to ensure adequate budgetary allocation and address homelessness. This section provides empirical evidence on selected interventions to help Erickson city implement the service model. Interventions Non-Abstinence-Contingent Housing Programs Studies by Munthe-Kaas et al. (2018) revealed that providing stable housing is the first step towards the provision of mental health services. In this case, housing provision should not be tied to any conditions but rather make the client ready by providing a stabilized environment. Thus, the housing first is the preferred housing model developed by the pathway alliance is such a viable intervention. Van Wormer and van Wormer (2009) noted that the non-abstinence housing program has a proven retention rate of 85% and is far superior to conventional housing systems. Munthe-Kaas et al. (2018) reported that in the non-abstinence housing programs provide, a client is provided with housing based on their wishes and offered psychiatric help in the form of the adapted version. Standard Case Management The other preferable intervention is standard case management. Studies by De Vet et al. (2013)
