Healthy Aging Workshop

  • 16 Feb 2011
  • 2:00 PM - 3:59 PM
  • One West Penn Elderly Apartments, Carlisle
The “Healthy-Aging Workshop” was designed as a means to outreach to Seniors and consists of a 1 hour interactive session.  The session includes an introduction to the Pennsylvania Behavioral Health & Aging Coalition, what the coalition does, and how you can benefit from becoming a member of the organization so that the voice of older adults in Pennsylvania are strengthened.  The workshop includes an educational training on depression, seeking treatment, and a geriatric depression screening tool; as well as information that pertains to alcohol & substance abuse.  A fun “feel-good bingo” game is played which serves as a teaching-tool about behavioral health issues.  The workshop is also a way to meet peers, discuss and share important information, network, and support others.

Target audience: Older adults
