SAMHSA and the Administration for Community Living, together with the National Coalition on Mental Health and Aging, invite you to mark your calendar for the first National Older Adult Mental Health Awareness Day. This discussion is designed to raise public awareness about the mental health of older Americans and spur action to address the needs of this population. Watch a panel of experts discuss evidence-based approaches to mental health and substance use prevention, treatment, and recovery supports for older adults, and encourage collaboration between the mental health and aging networks. The panel will also highlight the work of the Interdepartmental Serious Mental Illness Coordinating Committee and offer guidance for people who seek treatment and services. HHS Assistant Secretary for Mental Health and Substance Use, Elinore McCance-Katz, M.D., Ph.D., along with HHS Assistant Secretary for Aging, Lance Robertson, will provide opening remarks.
The event will be live webcast, and registration is required.
