In Reply The At Home/Chez Soi study recruited adults experiencing homelessness and mental illness and stratified them into high- and moderate-needs groups. The prevalence of depression among unselected homeless adults is reported to range from 0% to 49%.1 A higher prevalence among homeless individuals experiencing mental illness is therefore not surprising.
