Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

A supplemental mental health program for chronically ill adults: A grant proposal project
by Zarate, Daniel A., M.A., California State University, Long Beach, 2014, 67; 1528074
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant and identify a funder to expand and improve the current mental health services at the John Wesley Community Health Clinics (JWCH) for adults experiencing co-occurring chronic physical illness and a mental health disorder. This project included assessing the need for these integrated care services, development of a program that addresses the needs of the target population, identifying a funding source, and writing a grant. The proposed Innovations program aims to expand services to low-income and uninsured adults suffering from co-occurring mental illness and chronic physical illness to reduce psychological stress and impairment, increase patients' social support systems, and improve behavioral health. In addition, the Innovations program will improve collaboration among multidisciplinary health providers and increase patient attendance. Actual submission and/or funding of this program were not a requirement for successful completion of this project.
