Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project was to design a program, identify potential funding sources, and write a grant to fund a self-injury support group to reduce the rates and severity of self-injury amongst female adolescents who self-injure in Los Angeles, California. An extensive literature review increased knowledge about the issues associated with self-injury and provided information about prior treatments used for self-injury that the grant writer then used to design a pilot self-injury support group. A search for potential funding sources via the Internet enabled the grant writer to narrow potential grant funders. A grant was then written to create one of the first self-injury support groups in Los Angeles.
