There is estimated to be 18,000 Cambodians living in Long Beach, California. Approximately 50% of this population has suffered from depression or mental health conditions after 25 years of resettlement from the Khmer Rouge war in 1975. The researcher has found that there are various mental health related stressors such as PTSD, and depression, that Cambodians have struggle with after the post-migration.
The purpose of this proposal project was to write a grant to fund a psychoeducational group for Cambodian survivors and their family members in the City of Long Beach to address and raise awareness on mental health. The goals were to decrease mental health symptoms, provide coping skills and improve access to community resources. The grant writer identified the Weingart Foundation as a potential funding source for this program. The actual submission and funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
