this is ireland

A number of people sleeping rough and refusing to go into emergency hostels were sectioned and taken into care under the Mental Health Act on Thursday.

In one case, a hospital was asked to take custody of a woman, with serious mental health issues, who had been sleeping in a hole in a wall.

The hospital initially refused to take her, saying it did not have a bed, but following the intervention of An Garda Síochána the hospital was expected to admit her later.

Does any one know how bad these Hostels are, as you hear story's of open drug dealing & bullying/harassment from staff in these places! So you could understand why these people would rather be on the streets. No
