The purpose of this grant project was to fund a mental health educational and community outreach program for Latinos. Latinos in general are one of the least likely groups to access mental health services. This proposed project seeks to increase knowledge of mental illness thus reducing the stigma associated with seeking mental health services. This program also seeks to enhance awareness of available mental health services by conducting community outreach events where pamphlets, brochures, and community referrals will be disseminated among the target population. The targeted area is Los Angeles County, specifically communities surrounding South Los Angeles, who are eligible for the Behavioral Health Program at St. John's Well Children & Family Center. The California Endowment was selected as the ideal funding source for this grant project. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
