Geroposium 2010: Overlooked and Underserved

Geroposium 2010:
Overlooked and Underserved: Seniors in Need of Mental Health Services … Linking the Medical Care and Mental Health Systems

The NYIT Center for Gerontology and Geriatrics presented a Geroposium on mental health and aging on Tuesday, May 11, 2010 from 8:30 a.m. to noon in the Rockefeller Academic Center (NYCOM I) Auditorium on the Old Westbury campus.

Co-Sponsors

  • Geriatric Mental Health Alliance of Nassau County
  • Long Island Geriatric Education Center
  • Mental Health Association of Nassau County
  • New York State Psychological Association-Division of Adult Development & Aging
  • Ohel Children's Home & Family Services

This Geroposium focused on an important part of the problem of assuring better access to geriatric mental health services, namely the problematic link between the medical care and mental health systems, including primary health care. The program provided an overview of the mental health needs of older adults and the special role of primary health care, and also described a fascinating service designed to integrate mental health services into medical settings serving the elderly, including how it works for patients and doctors alike.

There was no charge for this conference and a light breakfast was served.

Registration contact: Dr. Tobi Abramson at tabramso@nyit.edu.
