The purpose of this integrative literature review was to delineate the mental health care needs of homeless mentally ill women. Twelve articles addressed the mental health care needs of homeless mentally ill women. The women in these 12 articles were predominantly African-American shelter users in urban areas. The majority of these women were diagnosed with serious and persistent psychiatric disorders, such as, schizophrenia, schizoaffective disorder, and mood disorders. From these twelve articles, 18 mental health needs were disclosed. Those mental health care needs reported by 50 % of the articles were selected as the mental health needs to be addressed by health care providers. These mental health needs were alcohol and substance problem (92%) and emotional problem related to traumatic experience (75%). Based on the data, comprehensive programs should be developed that focus on homelessness, substance use, and traumatic experiences. Future studies should systematically investigate the relationship between mental disorder, alcohol and drug abuse, and emotional problems related to traumatic experiences. The results from this integrative literature review cannot be generated to homeless mentally ill women who live in the rural areas and on the streets as well as to those homeless mentally ill women of different ethnic backgrounds.
