Resource Type: 

This webinar (55:37 minutes) given by Marcia Liss and Deborah M. Robitaille discusses how to talk to older adults about mental health. By the end of this webinar, learners should be able to: (1) discuss how to effectively communicate with older adults regarding their mental health; (2) describe how to complete an assessment in the community versus in the office; and (3) identify stigma associated with mental health treatment by older adults in general, especially those from minority backgrounds. Registration is required by the creators to access the material but there is no charge. (Webinar starts at 3:17 minutes.)
