ABSTRACT
Homelessness among youth in the UK is increasingly disturbing, with an estimated
annual increase of 10% of the homeless people. It was revealed that homeless
people are more likely to die young, with an average age of death of 47 years. The
young adult suffering from it remains the worse hit. Homelessness increases the risk
of having mental health problems and encountering barriers to social well-being due
to stigmitisation. Factors contributing to the development of homelessness were
highlighted and discussed. The review is to examine the impact of youth
homelessness as it relates to their mental and social well-being. The literature shows
that many youth homeless people have been exposed to histories of addictions,
unhealthy lifestyles, alcohol dependency, mental illnesses and depression. Also, the
review suggests that comprehensive policy change should be strengthened and
channelled to address both the immediate and long-term needs of homeless youth
especially in the area of affordable housing and also a greater emphasis on
prevention should be further researched, which also should include assistance which
meet basic needs. The research on youth homelessness is difficult to capture and as
such making it diffiult to have an accurate and complete capture of homeless youth.
The review also show a wider understanding of youth homelessness as a global
phenomenon, a perennial of housing shortage in the UK.
