Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant for a support group for parents of adolescents who engage in self-injurious behaviors. The project identified potential funding sources, the population's needs, and a potential funder to implement this support group at the host agency, Santa Maria Valley Youth and Family Center in Santa Maria, California. The needs of the parents were identified through a review of the literature and support group models were reviewed to identify best practices for this population. Funding sources were researched via the Internet and grant databases. The Amgen Foundation was selected as a funding source. This grant was written with the intention of providing resources and services to parents to minimize the stresses and challenges associated with self-injury. The focus of the support group is to improve the quality of life for all involved in the parental role in order to improve the adolescent's quality of life. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
