After years of research and efforts to enhance mental health treatment, transition-age youth (TAY) with a history of child welfare involvement continue to make the transition to adulthood with high rates of mental illness. Consequently, there is significant risk of adverse life experiences including homelessness, substance abuse, criminal activity, and poverty. Existing literature indicates TAY often disengage from services due to stigma associated with traditional mental health services. Growing research supports use of yoga and mindfulness therapy as a complementary alternative treatment to improve mental and emotional well-being. The purpose of this project was to write a grant application to fund the creation and implementation of an evidence-based yoga and mindfulness therapy program to enhance positive mental and emotional well-being by increasing ability to self-regulate emotions, strengthen coping mechanisms, support resilience, and positively reengage TAY in services. Submission for funding was not required to successfully complete this project.
