Includes one complimentary Continuing Education (CE) credit*
Untreated mental health disorders can have a significant impact on older adults, such as social isolation, placement in long-term care facilities and high rates of suicide. Older adults who show signs of having a mental disorder are less likely than younger adults to receive mental health services, and when they do, they are less likely to receive care from a mental health specialist. Professionals play a vital role in helping older clients and their families to recognize mental health disorders and support them in obtaining an evaluation and appropriate treatments.
Join this webinar to learn more about mental and emotional health in later years. Also learn from a guest speaker from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, who will provide tips and resources on recognizing the signs of suicide and on prevention.
