NCOA Webinar: A Spotlight on Older Adults and Behavioral Health

May 18th, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST

Join this National Council on Aging webinar for an update on behavioral health topics relevant to older adults. One in four older Americans experience a behavioral health issue that is not a normal part of aging, yet they are less likely to receive treatment than younger individuals.

In this webinar, participants will be informed on:
  •  The latest national data from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) on depression, suicide, and substance abuse or misuse in older adults.
  •  A description of the Mental Health Association of New York City’s (MHA-NYC) initiatives to improve access to behavioral health services for older adults.
