Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant project is to develop and fund a mental health educational and community outreach program for Latinos. Latinos are one of the least likely groups to access mental health services. This proposed project seeks to increase the awareness and knowledge of mental illness within the Latino community thus, reducing the stigma associated with seeking mental health services. This program also seeks to enhance awareness of available mental health services within the community by conducting community canvassing, in which pamphlets, brochures, and educational presentations will be held for the members of 10 targeted communities within the Los Angeles County. The California Endowment was selected as the ideal funding source for this proposed grant project. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not requirement for the successful completion of the project.
