This study explores the needs of the homeless and mentally ill in the heavily populated coastal area of Guyana. The process, findings and implications of this international social work collaboration are discussed. Many of the respondents have coexisting mental and substance abuse disorders. Living on the street is associated with serious physical health problems and violent victimisation. Loss of family support precipitates homelessness for respondents, who summarise their needs as a home, a meal and a job.
