According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, depression affects more than 6.5 million of the 35 million Americans age 65 and older. In 2014, Archstone Foundation launched its Depression in Late-Life Initiative, awarding a four-year grant to the University of Washington (UW), and the University of California, Davis (UC Davis), to support the Care Partners: Bridging Families, Clinics, and Communities to Advance Late-Life Depression Care project.
Care Partners is testing innovative approaches to treating depression through community-engaged partners working together to strengthen the involvement of family, friends, and community-based organizations (CBOs) in providing enhanced collaborative care for depressed older adults offered in the primary care setting or in the community.
Join Grantmakers In Aging and Grantmakers In Health for an important conversation with Archstone Foundation and the Care Partners team. Speakers will share their successes and challenges in implementing these Collaborative Care interventions and discuss next steps to build on these models to improve late-life depression care in California.
Moderated by John Feather, CEO, Grantmakers In Aging. Presented by Grantmakers In Aging and Grantmakers In Health. Thank you to Archstone Foundation for supporting this webinar.
