----------------------------------------------------------------------------- 

Older adults are more likely to sustain traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) than members of any other age group; yet TBI is often misunderstood or neglected—even though brain injuries can make it harder for elders to live independently, limit their cognitive abilities and put them at greater risk for hospitalization or death. 

Join us to learn how to identify and treat older adults who suffer from TBI and to learn about its prevalence, etiology and symptoms.

            Social Workers who are members of NASW-NYS may apply for Continuing Education Credits (CEU) for $25.00.

Organizer

The Geriatric Mental Health Alliance of NY

The Mental Health Association of New York City established The Geriatric Mental Health Alliance in January 2004. The Alliance was formed to confront the mental health challenges of the elder boom and to promote critical changes in practice and policy.

The goal of The Alliance is to promote improved geriatric mental health practice by identifying best and innovative practices, identifying barriers to their use, developing policy proposals to overcome these barriers, and advocating for policy and practice changes. To this end, The Alliance sponsors consensus groups on topics related to geriatric mental health; a series of presentations on best practices with national experts; and numerous conferences. In addition, the Alliance provides technical assistance regarding service models and funding including how to optimize Medicare funding.
