|Support of Children With Mental Health Disorder|
It is very challenging for parents of children struggling with mental health issues. Over the course of my career, I have seen so many families in need of the support, information and skills vital to effectively support love ones throughout their mental health journey. This assignment provides you the opportunity to present the conceptualization of the problem you require resources to address. The assignment has the following interrelated components: the identification of the problem you will address in your proposal, a thorough review of the literature about what is known, possible and promising (preferably evidence-based) solutions, and other supporting material, and a statement of need resulting from the problem. You will present a succinct statement of the problem and why it exists, and provide a concise and well researched background briefing based on a review of the literature and other evidence accessed in support of your application.
Criteria for Assessment
Your submission is not to exceed 1500 words, excluding the cover sheet and references. References can include material that helps develop understanding into the background statement of need and can include a wide variety of sources such as peer-reviewed material, research-based evidence as well as material from local organizations. Remember that writing a proposal is a unique art and a proposal is only as good as is the very precise communication within it. Therefore, writing counts as much as the content.
Your essay will be graded based on the following rubric:
