Addressing the Behavioral Health Needs of Older Adults
December 2, 2015 2:00 pm Eastern Time
Cosponsored by Grantmakers In Aging
The high prevalence of behavioral health issues in the elder population is rarely discussed. Yet millions of older adults across the country have undiagnosed and untreated behavioral health needs, such as late-life depression and substance abuse, which are lowering their quality of life and overall health. This webinar explored important behavioral health challenges facing older adults, some of the promising practices and interventions being studied and implemented, and opportunities for health funders to make a difference. Speakers included: Ladson Hinton of University of California-Davis, Paulette Parker of Williamsburg Health Foundation, and Kathryn Power of Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.
