by Janairo, Brian, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2017, 56; 10263594
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant to provide a psychosocial support group for young adults diagnosed with schizophrenia and their family and friends at Mental Health America (MHA) The Village, located in Long Beach, California. An extensive literature review has shown that family psychoeducation improves functioning, reducing symptoms in individuals with schizophrenia and the burden in their families. The aim was to locate a potential funding source in order to provide psychoeducation with therapeutic supportive relationships, based on the recovery paradigm. The goals of the program are to reduce familial burden, strengthen supportive relationships, and enhance quality of life.

The UniHealth Foundation was identified as a potential funder for this program. If granted funding from this foundation, the proposed program would implement innovative psychosocial treatment to provide participants with positive mental health outcomes. Submission for funding was not required to successfully complete this grant writing project.
