Homelessness is a common issue at a global level. Masses are suffering from it, yet no proper remedy has been sorted out by officials. In the New York Post, ‘Subway Riders’, the same issue was highlighted, which motivated me to choose it to contribute some knowledge. In an article written by Rosner, Parker, and Golding, mental illness is quoted as an attribute that prevails in homeless people.
It is hurtful to know that many homeless people are so overwhelmed with their condition that they start doing foolish acts that disturb riders. This kind of action is dangerous for human beings and their lives.
Homelessness is a Dilemma
In this article, different people have shared their experiences about homeless people and their plight. It is clear that this feeling makes homeless people depressed, and they get into psychosis. According to a physician, Marlene, homeless people come across yelling and hallucinations. They need help to improve their mental health.
Due to homeless people wandering around railway tracks and roadside, commuters have to face issues. Such people are unable to maintain their hygiene. They are increasingly suffering mental and physical health issues. Homeless living is illegal in most of the cities.
The issues they face make them vulnerable and unable to stand back on their feet. This comes with many other living issues, such as income insecurity, health insecurity, and lack of basic needs. In this article, De Blasio the Mayor of a city, was shown lashing out at people for the homeless masses taking over the public places.
The situation could be more secure for commuters and can cause severe trouble. This aspect of society is dark, and authorities should focus on curbing it.
