  • Details

Late life depression has become increasingly prevalent among older adults. This book presents guidelines to help enable aging and social service programs to establish a mental health education and screening program focused on late-life depression. This 2-time award-winning model presented in this book offers a practical and culturally-sensitive approach to mental health education which can be adapted by service programs seeking to identify clinical depression among their older adult clientele.

Additionally, this program offers professionals serving older adults an opportunity to increase their knowledge about clinical depression among older adults; develop the skills necessary to identify the signs of clinical depression and suicidal ideation; and create long-standing, collaborative relationships across the professional disciplines of aging, social services, medical and mental health services.
