by Cativo, Lilian C., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 71; 1527535
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal seeking funds for the development of a mental health program for underserved military families of OIF/OEF service members. Military families often lack awareness of the mental health issues impacting service members as well as the family unit. The mental health of family members can be seriously impacted if left untreated and subsequently impact the service member's ability to manage post-deployment emotions and mental distress. By enhancing military families' awareness and coping skills it strengthens their resiliency and in doing so, the family is better prepared to overcome challenges that arise during reintegration. Health Net Federal Services' Corporate Giving Program was selected as a potential funding source for this program and Amanecer Community Counseling Services will be the host agency. The actual submission and/or funding for this grant were not requirements for the successful completion of this project.
