A SAMHSA sponsored webinar presented by Mental Health America, took place Thursday, July 29, 2021 from 12:30-2:00pm Eastern Time called “Supporting Older Adults with Comorbid Health Conditions”.
Description: As individuals age, they are at increased risk of experiencing multiple chronic conditions across both physical and mental health. Adults with comorbid health conditions, especially if these include mental illnesses, often face barriers to engaging in initial care. For many, there are continuing difficulties once engaged in care, like managing multiple providers or feeling like their conditions are being addressed independently.
This webinar will explore:
•Mental Health America’s findings from surveying adults with co-morbid physical and mental health conditions about their care experiences;
•Skills to effectively engage older adults with multiple chronic conditions in care;
•Why integration of physical and behavioral health care is important for older adults, and how to put it into practice.
•Maddy Reinert – Senior Director of Population Health, Mental Health America
•Dr. Maureen Nash – Medical Director, Providence Elderplace PACE Oregon (Program of All Inclusive Care of the Elderly)
