by Tiedra, Alicia Honorata, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2020, 54; 27830607
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to write a grant proposal to fund an anti-stigma training program for adolescents in six of the Long Beach Unified High School Districts. Mental Health America of Los Angeles-the Village was selected as the host agency for this program.

After reviewing the literature on mental health stigma and concluding that stigma can be preventative at a young age, the grant writer designed an anti-stigma program for adolescents. The purpose of the proposed training program was to prevent mental health stigma by reaching adolescents when they are young and providing them accurate knowledge and information on mental health. This is in hopes of preventing future mental health stigma and educate adolescents on mental health. This grant was written to the California Community Foundation.

The actual funding or submission of this grant was not a requirement for the successful completion of the project.
