Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify a funding source, and write a grant proposal that address the mental health needs of parolees to aid in the process of reintegration. The program is an outpatient mental health program for adult male parolees, and will provide individual therapy and psychoeducational groups over a I year period. Treatment and practice for this population are strongly based on the biopsychosocial model and use of cognitive behavioral therapy techniques.

The host agency is the Mental Health Association (MHA) of Orange County, California. The mission of the MHA is to improve the quality of life for the residents of Orange County through direct services, advocacy, education, and information dissemination. The identified funding source is the National Institute of Mental Health which aims to create or modify interventions that would improve mental health and health risk behaviors. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
