Engage, Assess, Treat: Strategies for the Aging Network to Address Behavioral Health

January 22 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm


Depression and anxiety are not a normal part of aging and may impact older adult’s ability to complete daily activities and enjoy time with friends and family. Join this webinar for a discussion of strategies for the aging network to get involved in talking to older adults about mental health, screening individuals for anxiety and depression, and options for providing or referring individuals to treatment. Best practices and lessons learned will be shared from two initiatives focused on providing mental health services through senior centers, including the Sandy Mobilization, Assessment, Referral and Treatment for Mental Health Intervention Project (SMART-MH) and TRIO, part of the Thrive NYC initiative.

Presenter: Jo Anne Sirey, Ph.D., Professor of Psychology in Psychiatry, Institute for Geriatric Psychiatry, Weill Cornell Medical College
