Summit to address mental health of older adults
Santa Clara County Older Adult Summit will be held on Wednesday, June 1, 2011 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. It will be located in the Mediterranean Room of the San Jose Airport Garden Hotel to develop a plan to improve the mental health care and support throughout the community and among senior-serving agencies and providers.
Depression and other mental health issues are not a normal part of aging. This summit will bring together senior service providers, consumers, family members and advocates to focus on the mental health needs of seniors in Santa Clara County to identify the gaps in mental health services to seniors and will identify the necessary steps to provide wraparound mental health services for older adults.
This summit is FREE to attend for people live or work in Santa Clara County. RSVP is required, please call 408-885-5770 or visit www.supervisorcortese.org to register. The Older Adult Summit is co-organized by the Office of Supervisor Dave Cortese, the Santa Clara County Mental Health Department, and the Mental Health Board.
