<p>The purpose of the grant was to fund a mental health awareness fair. The aim is to spread mental health awareness, by reaching out to communities where people are underserved. Educating people about mental health, would impact how people think of others dealing with mental health issues. The grant would bring a resource fair that would showcase all service providers in both mental and physical health agencies in Los Angeles County, hosted by Mental Health of America, Los Angeles.
Hosting a resource fair in Los Angeles County will give the community an opportunity to identify services available to them and/or their families. Service providers will be offer services such as depression screenings, blood pressure checks, HIV testing, healthy coping skills lists, and/ or sleep hygiene tips. It would also show the communities that service providers work together to serve the health of the whole person.
