The purpose of this project was to develop a program, select a potential funding source, and write a grant that would help adults suffering from severe and persistent mental illness (SPMI) to develop skills to improve their quality of life at work and/or in their community.
Adults suffering from SPMI have historically suffered not only from the symptoms of mental illness, but also from stigma attached to mental illness. Creative treatment approaches were developed to increase the social skills of persons with SPMI. This grant writer identified expressive art therapy phototherapy as the main intervention approach to be used for this project. Specifically, a Photo-Expression Group will be offered as a component of treatment at a psychosocial rehabilitation center for persons with SPMI.
The actual submission of the grant to the selected foundation was not necessary for this project.
