The process of aging is one of growth and change. Some of these changes are unexpected. Whether it comes in the form of depression, anxiety, changes in cognition or financial needs, older persons can experience a range of emotional, behavioral, and medical needs. The world of behavioral health has a professional to meet each of these needs, but sometimes it can be difficult to know how to choose the right provider. This webinar will provide basic information on the services available through behavioral health, as well as its common providers, and their specialties and services offered. Practical ways of connecting with these providers and engaging their services will be discussed to maximize the benefit for your older clients and their families.
