Webinar to explore integrating mental health, aging services

The webinar “Building Relationships between Mental Health and Aging Services” will be held from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 10. The event recognizes Older Americans Month and Mental Health Awareness Month in May and is being hosted by the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors and sponsored by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. The population 65 and older will dramatically increase in the coming years. The U.S. Census projects that adults 65 and over will represent 56.4 million of the nation’s population by 2020. With the mental health needs of many older adults going undiagnosed and untreated, this webinar will focus on strategies to integrate mental health into aging service settings.
