Untreated mental health disorders can have negative impacts such as social isolation, placement in long-term care facilities and even suicide. Older adults who show signs of having a mental disorder are less likely than younger adults to receive mental health services, and when they do, they are less likely to receive care from a mental health specialist. Professionals have a vital role in helping older clients and their families recognize mental health disorders and support them in obtaining an evaluation and appropriate treatments. Join this webinar to learn more about mental and emotional health in later years and how to best support someone with mental health needs.
