Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

Mental health awareness and stigma reduction program for people of color: A grant proposal
by Orozco, Luis R., M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2010, 71; 1486352
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this project is to address the issue of stigma in mental illness for people of color, in California, using recovery stories and the dissemination of culturally competent information that accurately describes mental illness and the issues that surround it. An intensive literature review was performed in order to analyze the effects of stigma in mental illness, as well as, the best-recommended practices that have been used in the past for the eradication of stigma. A search for potential funding sources was also performed. During this search, the California Endowment was identified as the best source for funding due to the structure of their grant application process and their interest of improving the health status of underserved communities. Additionally, Recovery in Action International was identified as a possible hosting agency because the project's objectives are very in tune with Recovery in Action International's mission.
