The purpose of this project was to design a program that provides "stepping stones" to reduce psychiatric recidivism among young adults between ages of 18-29 being discharged from psychiatric hospitalization. The goal was identify potential funding sources and write a grant proposal to fund a recidivist prevention program by focusing on engaging and collaborating with significant others while educating and providing support to both the individual and the significant others. An extensive literature review increased knowledge about barriers to stabilization individuals with a mental illness encounter, and barriers to engaging and supporting their significant others and/or mentors. A search for potential funding sources via the Internet resulted in selection of The California Endowment as the best funding source. A grant was then written to support a recidivist reduction program. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
