In recognition of World Mental Health Day, join us for a webinar exploring community-based programs to address the behavioral health needs of older adults. Three evidence-based programs will be highlighted including the Program to Encourage Active, Rewarding Lives (PEARLS), Healthy IDEAS, and the Wellness Recovery Action Plan (WRAP). Presenters will share their experience implementing the programs, including an effort to train professionals in Illinois to deliver PEARLS and Healthy IDEAS, lessons learned from partnering with the Chicago Housing Authority to implement WRAP, and one senior center’s experience in cultivating partnerships to support this initiative.
