Abstract (Summary)

A traumatic event can cause very devastating effects such as symptoms of major depressive disorder (MDD). Support systems for Hispanics during traumatic events often fail to identify and address MDD, making the individual vulnerable to mental health complications. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal and identify a potential funder for a support group for the host agency of the proposed program, Homeless Outreach Program/Integrated Care Systems (HOPICS), in Los Angeles, California. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Foundation was chosen as the most promising funding source to provide support to Hispanics suffering from MDD due to trauma. The overall goal of the proposed program is to help male and female Hispanic adults who are survivors of trauma to learn how to cope with their diagnosis of MDD. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.
