The At Home study -- a radical experiment to end homelessness among Canadians with mental illness -- comes alive on an interactive video website created by the National Film Board. Short films tell the stories of some of the thousands of people whose lives were changed by this project. This site provides a glimpse into the world of a research project that is like no other: athome.nfb.ca.
