The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund a specialized training program to increase clinician knowledge and awareness surrounding borderline personality disorder (BPD). Individuals with BPD are the leading consumers of total mental health service costs because of the high rates of suicidal and self-harm behaviors that are related to the diagnosis.
After conducting a review of the literature, this grant writer developed a proposal to fund a training for clinicians based on the recovery model and dialectical behavior therapy (DBT). This training program aims to: reduce rates of burnout for clinicians, increase the effectiveness of treatment of BPD, and lower the overall healthcare costs associated with BPD. After researching potential funders, The California Wellness Foundation was determined to be the most applicable match for funding this project.
The actual submission of the grant proposal to the funder was not required for completion of this project.
