Building Capacity to Serve Older Adults with Mental Health Conditions

Event Description: 

I&R/A professionals across the country are receiving more calls for assistance from individuals with mental health conditions, often in conjunction with other complex needs. At the same time, mental health services are among the most frequently reported unmet service needs.

Our presenter, Jocelyn Chen Wise, serves as Project Director at the Fuqua Center for Late-Life Depression, an initiative of the Division of Geriatric Psychiatry at Emory University. As Project Director, Jocelyn provides support for community projects including the Fuqua Center’s work in affordable senior housing, and she serves as a social worker in the outpatient geriatric psychiatry clinic to assist individuals and families navigating mental health and aging resources.
