The purpose of this project was to partner with Los Angeles Centers for Alcohol and Drug Abuse agency, locate a potential funding source and write a grant to obtain funding for a training to decrease burnout among mental health professionals. This future care of older adults with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse project will address the needs of direct service providers working in the mental health field. A literature review was conducted to examine the best practices for decreasing and preventing burnout, and to examine history, policies, and so on related to the topic of burnout. This future care of older adults with co-occurring mental health and substance abuse program will support mental health professionals in decreasing or preventing the symptoms of burnout and in turn, help them to provide improved care to clients. The actual submission or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
