In July 2012, the Institute of Medicine released a report confirming what many people who work with older adults already know: That there are huge gaps in the geriatric mental health workforce and that the United States is not ready to meet the behavioral health challanges of the elder boom.

Dr. Alegria will discuss the report's findings, with a focus on diverse racial and ethnic populations; as well as steps that need to be taken to meet the behavioral health needs of elders.

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.
