The need for an adjunctive and alternative program at Alternative, Community, and Correctional Schools and Services (ACCESS) schools is critical to better serve the youth of Orange County. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal seeking funds to develop a program that will explore the use of active treatment approaches: healthy diet and exercise as an alternative or adjunct to the use of psychotropic medications among adolescents identified at risk for mental health problems. The proposed program if funded will introduce active approaches to improve the student's self-regulation and level of mental health functioning. The program will involve a nutritional, well balanced diet integrated into their daily life along with daily exercise and a weekly outdoor engagement outing. If funded, this program would result in the adolescent's ability to overcome their mental health challenges holistically, attaining self-sufficiency without pharmacotherapeutic treatment. Submission of this grant is not required for this thesis project.
