Addressing Behavioral Health with Older Adults in Primary Care Settings
The number of adults in the United States aged 65 and older is expected to exceed 82 million by 2040. Approximately 16 million of these older adults will have a mental health or substance use condition and they will be turning to their primary care providers for care. Join this webinar to learn what integrated health care practitioners, especially primary care providers, need to know to be prepared to meet behavioral health needs of the older adults they serve. Learn how one primary care provider took steps to identify and address behavioral health concerns in older adults and hear how integrated primary and behavioral health care can guide patients toward healthy aging.
The SAMHSA-HRSA will host a webinar on Wednesday, February 15, at 1:00 pm on this topic of growing importance. Primary care providers and behavioral health professionals can register for free here.
