STEVEN

MELBOURNE, 2011.  The ST KILDA DROP-IN CENTRE (aka “the Drop-In”) is an NGO that provides support for mentally ill people in the community who are either unable to be helped by traditional services or have been frustrated by them. Steven is one of the Drop-In’s clients; he was attending the Drop-In regularly while sleeping rough, going to church and simply trying to survive. Subsequent to this story being shot, Steven found safe accommodation and started counselling sessions. His whereabouts are presently unknown, for privacy reasons.
