Webinar on Depression, Anxiety and Suicide Prevention


Date: April 18, 2012

Time: 2:30 PM EST - 4:00 PM EST

Type: Webinar

Mental health problems affect one in five older adults. Depression and anxiety have been linked with worse physical health, higher health care costs, and lower quality or life in older adults. However, mental health disorders are treatable.

This webinar will describe the prevalence and impact of depression, anxiety, and suicide in older adults, and will identify screening strategies and evidence-based treatments. Actions that state and local agencies can use to implement effective treatments will be highlighted, with a specific focus on the strategy that one Area Agency on Aging has used to implement Healthy IDEAS and PEARLS.
