Care Partners: Bridging Families, Clinics, and Communities to Advance Late-Life Depression Care
June 3, 2019 2:00 pm Eastern Time
Cosponsored with Grantmakers In Aging
Depression affects more than 6.5 million of the 35 million Americans age 65 and older. In 2014, Archstone Foundation launched its Depression in Late-Life Initiative, awarding a four-year grant to the University of Washington and the University of California, Davis to support the Care Partners: Bridging Families, Clinics, and Communities to Advance Late-Life Depression Care project. Care Partners is testing innovative approaches to treating depression through community-engaged partners working together to strengthen the involvement of family, friends, and community-based organizations in providing enhanced collaborative care for depressed older adults offered in the primary care setting or in the community. Join us for an important conversation to discuss the successes and challenges in implementing these collaborative care interventions and next steps to build on these models to improve late-life depression care. Speakers include Ladson Hinton of University of California, Davis and Laura Rath of Archstone Foundation.
