Adults with hoarding behavior have struggled and suffered in silence due to lack of insight and shame surrounding this debilitating behavior. Research reinforces the need to provide a psycho-education program for adults with hoarding behavior, in an effort to decrease this debilitating behavior. The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal for the development of a psycho-educational program named Healthier Choices for The Outpatient Psychiatric Clinic at Community Hospital Long Beach, in Long Beach, California. The program goals are to increase social support; provide treatment for depression, anxiety and/or social phobia at the Outpatient Psychiatric Clinic; and increase knowledge of hoarding behavior among patients with hoarding behavior. The California Wellness Foundation was selected to fund the Healthier Choices program. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant project were not required for the successful completion of this project.
