Description and Schedule

This course is a live, interactive webinar held on September 6, from 12pm-3:20 pm Eastern Daylight Time.

This reduced price webinar does not offer CE Credits. The same live event is available for purchase and offers 3 CE hours for behavioral health clinicians.  See "related products" below.

Registration closes at midnight (EDT) the day before the event

Although many older adults experience high levels of life satisfaction, some will experience mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety, trauma, and/or substance misuse. Oftentimes, these issues are compounded by a lack of access to mental health services, stigma related to aging and/or mental health, and a general misunderstanding of how mental health concerns are experienced in later life. In this thought-provoking and practical training, participants will analyze the current prevalence of mental health concerns among older adults, recognize differences in how mental health is experienced in older adulthood, and develop strategies to support older adults who may be struggling with these mental health concerns.
