This project was created to write a grant proposal to develop and establish funding for the delivery of community-based psychotherapeutic services for older adults experiencing mental health challenges. The Council on Aging – Southern California was selected as the host agency for this program. Upon the review of literature regarding mental health conditions and the adverse effects on the older adult population, further research was conducted to analyze the benefits of community-based interventions and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The grant writer developed the Minds Matter program to address the disparities in existing treatment intervention efforts. The purpose of the proposed program is to improve the wellbeing and quality of life of older adults, reducing mental health symptomatology and breaking treatment barriers by providing home-based psychotherapeutic services. This grant was written to the Archstone Foundation. The submission or funding of this grant to the Foundation was not required to fulfill the successful completion of this project.
