Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A career development enhancement of supported employment for people with serious mental illness
by Moller, Jesse Lewis, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 77; 1523166
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a career development program for individuals with serious mental illness to explore career interests and further develop their vocational identities. This program will act as an enhancement to MHA's The Village Integrated Services' existing supported employment program. MHA's The Village Integrated Services, the hosting agency of this project, is located in Los Angeles County, California.

After conducting a review of the literature, the grant writer designed a focused career development service enhancement, the Career Development Project. After researching funding sources, the Weingart Foundation was determined to be the most applicable match for the funding of the project based upon an alignment of the goals of the funder with the purpose of the project and the mission of The Village Integrated Services.

Actual submission and funding of the grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.
