In recent years, more than half of Central American immigrants living in the United States reported that they decided to move because of the high violence rate in their countries of origin. Most Central American immigrants experience community violence and are at a higher risk of developing anxiety, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and depression. The purpose of this grant proposal was to provide mental health services to individuals from Central America who experienced a traumatic event and are now having symptoms related to PTSD. The proposed program aims to help individuals build positive coping skills that will decrease those symptoms and enhance their overall well-being. The grant writer selected the California Wellness Foundation as the potential funding source for the proposed project. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant were not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
