The purpose of this grant proposal was to develop a project that focuses on providing culturally sensitive services to adults with mental illness. The goal is to provide service in Spanish and avoid language barrier and miscommunication. The program will provide education on mental illness, symptom management, coping skills resources and support groups for mentally ill adults and their families. Educating the Latino community will create awareness and reduce the stigma associated with seeking mental health services. Extensive research demonstrates that Latino’s underutilize mental health services. Latinos encounter several challenges and inequality, which are barriers to seeking the necessary services. This project is focusing on Los Angeles County. This project was not required to submit for funding in order to successfully complete this grant proposal.
