For grantmakers who have an interest in issues affecting the Connecticut's older population.
Older adults face many stressors that can contribute to mental health concerns, yet these conditions often go underdetected or undertreated due to a variety of factors, including ageism and the complex overlay of physical and mental health. In addition, there is a well-documented shortage of trained mental health professionals to meet the current and growing demand for serving older adults. Rush University Medical Center’s Robyn Golden, MA, LCSW (Director of Health and Aging) and Kate Krajci, MA, LCSW (Coordinator, Mental Health Services of Health and Aging) will present unique aspects of mental health in older adulthood, including common myths, select screening and treatment options and future trends. Mary O’Donnell, Senior Program Officer at The Retirement Research Foundation, will offer a grantmaker’s perspective and specific examples for how funders can help their communities effectively address mental health and aging.
