Given the need for higher levels of support and guidance for Transitional Age Youth (TAY) who are diagnosed with a mental illness, the purpose of this project was to identify a funding source and write a grant proposal to design and implement an Internet-based support program to supplement services currently provided to TAY diagnosed with a mental illness. There are many risks associated with TAY including homelessness, substance abuse disorders, and repeated interactions with the criminal justice system. The target area is Los Angeles County, more specifically, Long Beach, California. The potential funding source for this project is the California Wellness Foundation because the criteria of the grant guidelines were consistent with the description of this program and identified population. The actual submission and/or funding of this program was not required for successful completion of this project.
