by Vu, Marilyn K., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2015, 54; 1589657
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to partner with a community mental health outpatient clinic, locate a potential funding source, and write a grant to obtain funding for a clinic wide wellness program. The proposed program aims to support mental health providers and employees at a mental health outpatient clinic to prevent and decrease burnout among mental health providers. A literature review was conducted to discuss the history of burnout, burnout symptoms and consequences, and interventions to reduce burnout. The Weingart Foundation was identified as a potential funding source for the program. The host agency chosen for this project is Western Youth Service West Clinic which provides comprehensive mental health services to children and families dealing with mental illness. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not required for the successful completion of this project.
