The purpose of this grant proposal project was to develop an educational and outreach program to improve access to mental health services among African Americans, to identify potential funding sources, and to write a grant to fund the program. Outreach methods and materials were developed in this proposal to help promote awareness about mental disorder and available mental health services. The proposed program will also provide needed mental health support services. African Americans in general are one of the least likely groups to seek professional mental health services. This proposed program seeks to increase African-Americans access to mental health services. It will focus on targeting African Americans in neighboring cities in Los Angeles County. The California Endowment was the potential funding source and has previously supported programs to people that are underserved.
