Event Details

This Chair Rocks

Monday, March 18 | 5:00pm-7:30pm

Presented by the Geriatric Mental Health Alliance of New York
and the Brookdale Center for Healthy Aging

 

 

Older adults are no more likely to experience depression or sadness than younger adults--so why do many of us still think of old age as a time of decline and despair?

 

Writer Ashton Applewhite took on this question, and This Chair Rocks is the result. Applewhite will discuss how we can challenge ageist beliefs and insist that old age can be a time of creativity, humor and happiness.

 

Join us for this special presentation that upends stereotypes--and just might change your view of aging.

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.
