Baseline Consumer Narratives of Lived Experience of the Mental Health Commission of Canada’s At Home/Chez Soi Project: Winnipeg Report

This report documents an overview of the baseline consumer narratives of the Mental Health Commission of Canada’s At Home/Chez Soi project in Winnipeg. It reports on participants’ oral accounts of precipitants of homelessness, life on the streets or in shelters and their experience of mental health and with mental health services. This report is the result of more than forty individual qualitative interviews with Winnipeg At Home/Chez Soi participants conducted by the Winnipeg project research coordinator, University of Manitoba graduate students, and a peer interviewer. The opinions expressed in the results section of this report are that of participants and thus are descriptive in nature and not intended to be an evaluative assessment.
