The purpose of this grant writing project was to fund a two-fold support group: one for chronically ill individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia, in conjunction with one for family members providing emotional and social support outside the home. The proposed project seeks to reduce conflict and stress by providing consumers and their family members with education about schizophrenia, medications, and interventions to help them better understand and cope with the diagnosis. This program also seeks to increase awareness of the therapeutic value family support plays in fostering hope and empowerment to promote collaboration in the recovery journey.
The targeted area is Los Angeles County, specifically communities surrounding Long Beach, CA which are eligible for services at The Village. The California Wellness Foundation was selected as the ideal funding source for this grant project. The actual submission of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the thesis project.
