The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to create a psycho-educational group for family members of adults with a mental health diagnosis. With this program, family members can receive guided and educated support. The additional support they receive will assist them in becoming more supportive to their loved ones who have mental illnesses. The group would take place at Alma Family Services in Long Beach, California. A search was conducted to locate an appropriate funder for this project. The Ralph M. Parsons Foundation had specific criteria about what type of agencies they fund, which was met by the agency and the program.
Individuals who experience mental health challenges face many difficulties during their lives. The support of knowledgeable, understanding, and caring family members may reduce some of life's challenges for individuals who experience mental illness. If funded, the program would benefit families who need psycho-education about mental illness and assistance with mental health questions. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
