Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant proposal was to locate a potential funding source and create an integrated health program. The target population for this project is Latinos living in Inglewood, CA diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes and demonstrate depressive symptoms. A thorough review of the literature was conducted to determine the most successful programs for people experiencing co-morbid diabetes and depression. The program will consist of two support group consisted of CBT with an educational component on diabetes management. The first group will be running onsite at Didi Hirsch Mental Health Services and the second group will be ran in a meeting room located at the community’s Darby Park to account for stigma.

Vida Abundante Program’s main goals are to reduce clients’ depressive symptoms, increase their diabetes management, and increase their own perception on the quality of life. This integrated health program will be co-facilitated by an LCSW with an MSW intern and a registered dietician. This program can potentially increase the well being of 40 residents from the city of Inglewood. Submission of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of this project.
