Problem Statement: Individuals who face poverty experience mental challenges due to stressors caused by poverty due to insecurity and uncertainty about food, housing, and income. Low-income communities tend to have limited resources, poor housing, experience high crime rates, violence rate, and inadequate education. This leads to individuals encountering several barriers to receiving and accessing mental health services. (Low-Income Communities- Anxiety and Depression Association of America, ADAA, n.d.)
