Access and utilization disparities in mental health care are well recognized among racial and ethnic minority groups in the United States. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal for funds to develop an age appropriate, culturally and linguistically compatible mental health peer support group addressing the increasing needs of older Chinese adults residing in the cities of Pomona, La Verne, and Claremont, California. A literature review was conducted to examine evidence-based research for the best practice and the unique needs of older Chinese adults. The goal of the project is to increase access, utilization, and retention of mental health service for older Chinese adults in their communities. The California Wellness Foundation was selected as the most appropriate funding source to fund this project at Tri-City Mental Health Wellness Center in Pomona, California. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
