Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A group support for older Cambodians with mental health conditions: A grant proposal
by Chhim, Samantha, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 59; 1527684
Abstract (Summary)

The proposed support group was designed for older Cambodian refugees who suffer from any mental health conditions primarily from the Khmer Rouge regime. Although the genocide occurred three decades ago, many refugees still suffer from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses, especially among the older generation. The support group will consist of older Cambodian refugees who had lived through the Cambodian genocide (1975-1979), are 55 year of age or older, are currently residing in the Long Beach community and suffer from any mental health condition diagnosed for more than 1 year. The goal of the proposed group is to strengthen the support and connection among the Cambodian refugee elders. The actual submission and/or funding of the grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
