Conversation: Senior Mental Health
Time & Location
About the Event
Mary Kay Battaglia (NAMI Wisconsin) and Sam Wilson (AARP Wisconsin) are hosting a conversation on addressing senior health - One is the Lonelist Number. How is mental health linked with chronic pain and addictions? How can individuals and organizations help connect seniors to needed services? How does senior mental health interact with the broader community?
They will introduce the topic and then open the space up for group discussion. What do you think or know about the topic that you'd like to share with others? What do you want to learn more about from others?
Based on participant feedback from previous conversations, we are experimenting with a different timeframe. At 11:00, everyone will have the opportunity to head out for their next appointments, but we'll keep the conversation going until 11:30 for anyone who wants to continue engaging. We're eager to see how this goes and learn from your ongoing feedback!
