Abstract (Summary)

Few Asians living in the United States utilize mental health services that are available. Filipinos, in particular, have the tendency to downplay the severity of their mental health symptoms. The purpose of this proposal was to obtain funding to increase the utilization of mental health programs by Filipinos in Los Angeles County, California. A host agency, Filipino Migrant Center, will provide a mental health fair to educate Filipinos on mental health issues, increase awareness of mental health services available to the community, and link individuals to mental health services. The California Community Foundation was identified as a potential funding source to support the mental health fair project designed to address the mental health needs of Filipinos in Los Angeles County. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of this thesis.
