The purpose of this project was to design a family centered mental health program for veterans, to identify potential funding sources, and to complete a grant application to fund a program for the veterans and their families in Long Beach, California. The proposed program incorporates evidence-based approaches to improve the mental health of veterans and their families post-deployment. The program aimed to provide families with various options of treatment from support groups and couple's therapy to children's play therapy and psychiatric referrals. The goal of Operation Uniting Families is to create interventions that increase social and relational functioning that improves family cohesion and supports a smooth transition for veterans returning from combat. This grant was written to meet the requirements of the funding of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' Public Health Grant. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant was not required for the successful completion of this grant.
