12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Our profession and our clients are aging. Learn about mental health (including cognitive impairment) and addiction issues and the realities, risk factors, and resources specific to older adults. Understand the unique barriers to getting help for older adults, characteristics of older adult mental health, chemical dependency, gambling problems, and the difference between dementia, grief, and depression. This course is designed to educate attorneys to identify and eliminate from the legal profession and from the practice of law biases against persons because of disabilities related to mental and chemical health issues. In addition, this program will touch on ethical issues that can arise if an impairment is present and will offer a protocol to encourage someone to get help
