First National Older Adult Mental Health Awareness Day

May 18, 2018

The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, the Administration for Community Living, and the National Coalition on Mental Health and Aging invite you to attend the first Older Adult Mental Health and Aging Awareness Day on Friday, May 18, 2018 from 10:00 am – 12:30 pm ET at the SAMHSA office (5600 Fishers Lane in Rockville, MD) with participation by webcast also available.

By 2030 the United States Census Bureau indicates there will be nearly 75 million Americans over age 65. A 2012 study from the Institute on Medicine found nearly one-in-five older Americans have one or more mental health/substance use conditions. Although they comprise only 15.2 percent of the U.S. population, older adults accounted for 18.2 percent of suicide deaths in 2016 and males 75 or older have suicide rates nearly double of any other age group.
