Addressing the Mental Health Needs of Adolescent Survivors of Human Trafficking: A Grant Proposal Project
by Muñoz, Angelica, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2018, 51; 10751194
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to fund a mental health group for adolescent female survivors of human trafficking. This group will collaborate with Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking (CAST) located in Los Angeles County. The group will provide supportive mental health services for adolescent females through group work.

After conducting a review of current literature, the grant writer designed a mental health group that will utilize trauma-focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to address the survivors’ mental health. The group will provide them with support, peer education, mental health services, de-stigmatization, and promote a sense of self. The Marisla Foundation was identified as the suitable funder to fund the mental health group for adolescent female survivors of human trafficking.

The actual submission and funding of this grant were not required for the successful completion of this academic project.
