Community mental health care for Chinese Americans: A grant proposal
by Kao, Chao Hung, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2012, 56; 1517706
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to increase mental health awareness and provide enhanced services to Chinese Americans. An extensive literature review was performed to understand the unmet needs of this population, as well as help-seeking patterns.

The grant-writer cooperated with the Chinatown Service Center to develop a pilot mental health awareness and referral program through its existing services. The goals are to increase and mental health screening in the primary care facility and establish a standard protocol for mental health referrals. The agency will then provide services to those who warrant mental health care but do not qualify for the Healthy Way LA program.

The funding source is the Cedars-Sinai Health Net Program. Although not a requirement for this thesis project, the application has been submitted and is under review.
