Message from the Pennsylvania Association of Area Agencies on Aging (P4A):
Addressing Mental Health and Substance Use in PS and Beyond
FREE 8-hour certificate course
AAAs have seen the need for improved access to mental health and substance use services at every level of service delivery, especially in Protective Services. The P4A Board of Directors has made addressing these access issues a top priority.
P4A/Pennsylvania is fortunate to have been chosen to partner with the E4 Center of Excellence for Behavioral Health Disparities in Aging to address mental health and substance use concerns among the older adults served in our AAAs. We have initiated a State Policy Academy through that partnership, and with that comes this exciting training opportunity.
The self-paced online courses will require 8 hours devoted over two months. The Center for Aging and Disability Education and Research (CADER) at the Boston University School of Social Work provides the training. See the above flyer for the details. Training slots are limited, so members are encouraged to use the form to register immediately.
If you have any questions about this training, contact Lynn Cooper, Behavioral Health Policy Specialist, at P4A.
