by Hurst, Brittany, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2016, 61; 10065208
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project is to write a grant proposal to seek funding for a support group for formerly incarcerated women with a severe mental illness as they enter the community. This group is meant to address the many needs of this population and help reduce recidivism. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) was selected as the potential funder. SAMHSA is committed to improving mental health care and increasing access to care in California. The host agency Telecare/TABS 109 is committed to mental health treatment for formerly incarcerated individuals under the AB 109 program. This support group would be in addition to the existing services at TABS 109. The actual submission and/or funding of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
