A joint collective for community engagement and bridge building focusing on persons with untreated mental illness| A grant proposal

<p> This thesis project explores the chronic issue of untreated mental illness as a social problem within the context of the County of Santa Barbara California&rsquo;s mental health public policy decision making process. As the county&rsquo;s Board of Supervisors considers implementation of the California Legislature&rsquo;s Assembly Bill AB1421, which provides for Assisted Outpatient Treatment, it is essential that the board fully consider the issues, community perspectives and impact. Funding to be requested in the following grant proposal is to be used for interventions providing an educational forum focusing on diverse stakeholder perspectives in order to develop implementation recommendations. Actual submission and/or funding of the grant were not required for the completion of this project. An assessment of current research establishes both that untreated mental illness is a serious social problem with high costs to the individual and communities, as well as the importance of community involvement in the development of public policy.</p>
