Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to develop and write a grant proposal to fund a supported employment program for persons with severe mental illness (SMI). The project will provide the support necessary for the consumers to focus on developing work-based coping skills for persons with severe mental illness.

In developing this project, a review of the literature was first conducted to identify model employment programs for mental health consumers. Online databases were searched to identify potential funders. The foundations that appeared suitable for this project included: The California Wellness Foundation, The Mazda Foundation, The David and Lucile Packard Foundation, and The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. After investigating the requirements of each of the identified finders, The California Wellness Foundation was chosen as the most likely to fund this project.

Actual submission and or funding of the grant were not required for the successful completion of this project.
