Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Recovery support group for consumer-providers of mental health services
by Anderson, Jessica, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2009, 50; 1466183
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to provide a recovery support group, identify potential funding source, and fund and support group that would assist the consumer providers working in mental health to maintain recovery and prevent burnout.

An extensive literature review was conducted regarding the consumer-survivor movement, peer support, the recovery model, and consumer providers. The literature helped the grant proposal writer to support the rationale for funding a proposal to implement a recovery support group for this population.

A search for funding was conducted via the Los Angeles Grantsmanship center databases, which included private, state, and federal foundations. The National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) was chosen as a source of funding for the proposed program. The actual submission of this grant was not a requirement of this thesis project.
