by Hartley, Megan, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2019, 64; 13811976
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal for a postpartum posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) recovery program in Long Beach, California. After conducting a thorough review of the literature, the grant writer designed the proposed Postpartum PTSD Recovery Program.

The proposed project is comprised of two components. The first component of the program provides training and resources for medical providers to learn how to identify women who are experiencing postpartum PTSD and make appropriate referrals. The second component of the pro-gram provides culturally competent and evidence-based treatment services for women experiencing symptoms of postpartum PTSD, with an emphasis on serving traditionally underserved populations.

The Long Beach Trauma Recovery Center (LBTRC) was selected as the host agency for this program. This grant was written to the California Health Care Foundation (CHCF). The sub-mission of the grant application was not required for this thesis project.
