      The World Health Organization has identified the need for significant changes in practice and service delivery to address the rapidly growing burdens associated with mental, neurological and substance use disorders. Older adults confronting these disorders face significant barriers to quality of life.

      These complex disorders in late life challenge new graduates and seasoned professionals alike. Population aging demands greater professional workforce capacity, and clinical providers are vital to assuring appropriate care and treatment for older adults and their families. This certificate program explores the practice implications of working with older adults living with mental, neurological, and substance abuse disorders.Participants may choose to attend either a stand-alone intensive training program, earning continuing education credits for each workshop respectively, or attend both programs to receive the Adelphi Certificate in Mental Health and Aging (30 CEs).
