This course is open to all interested healthcare professionals.

Purpose

The World Health Organization defines health as “a complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. It is estimated that 20% of people aged 55 years or older experience some mental health concerns. The most common conditions include anxiety, severe cognitive impairment, and mood disorders (such as depression or bipolar disorder). In its 7th year, the Geriatric Behavioral Health Conference brings together behavioral health professionals to learn about geriatric dementia and other mental health disorders in older adults.

Agenda

All times listed are in Central Time. The agenda is subject to change.
