The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant for an integrated health care program. The target population for this program is people with Type 2 Diabetes who are also experiencing depressive symptoms. An extensive literature review was performed to determine the most successful interventions for people with co-occurring health and mental health disorders. The program will be hosted at Mental Health America's Village, a mental health agency serving residents of Long Beach, California.
The programs main goals are to increase diabetes self-management while reducing depressive symptoms and increasing quality of life. The integrated program will be facilitated by a Licensed Vocational Nurse and a Master in Social Work level social worker. This program has the potential to impact hundreds of lives in Long Beach, California. The actual submission of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
