Closing the Gap: Social Isolation and Older Adults

Tues,, March 19, from 1 – 2:30 p.m. ET

Register: https://register.gotowebinar.com/register/274342841421459971

By 2035, there will be 78 million people age 65 years and older. We also know that about 20 percent of people age 55 years and older experience a mental health concern. The alarming rate of social isolation among older adults intensifies this problem. What can we, as health care providers, do to address social isolation and support the behavioral health needs of older adults?

Jennifer Solomon from the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) at the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will discuss social isolation and methods for addressing it, with an emphasis on SAMHSA’s Get Connected Toolkit, a resource created to help health and aging services providers learn more about substance use disorders and mental health conditions in older adults.

Since 2012, the National Council for Behavioral Health has operated the Geriatric Technical Assistance Center (GTAC), providing technical assistance to Partnership Innovation for Older Adults grantees, who are forming community partnerships between mental health, substance use and aging service providers. Email Nicole Cadovius at NicoleC@TheNationalCouncil.org for more information.
