The purpose of this project was to partner with a local host agency, locate a potential funding source and write a grant to obtain funding for a training program to decrease burnout among mental health professionals. The proposed Practicing Self-care Through Mindfulness program will address the needs of direct service providers working in the field of mental health. A literature review was conducted to examine the best practices for decreasing and preventing burnout, and to examine history and policies related to the topic of burnout. This Practicing Self-care Through Mindfulness program will support mental health professionals in decreasing or preventing the symptoms of burnout and in turn, help them to provide improved care to clients. The funding source chosen for this program is the Weingart Foundation. The hosting agency for this program will be the MHA Village in Long Beach, California. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
