PURPOSE OF THIS WEB SITE

Individuals and agencies regularly ask about aging and mental health:

    * How and where do I obtain a service?
    * How do services differ?
    * How do I know if someone needs help?
    * What can I do to stay healthy?
    * Who are providers and how do I know what they do?

It became clear that information about elder mental health and appropriate services is not accessible to everyone.



The Greater Lowell Elder Mental Health Collaborative decided to develop an elder mental health resource. It made sense to place this information at an accessible location. We also wanted to make changes easily in order to keep them current. Therefore we decided to develop an elder mental health resource guide on a web site.

The information in this guide is available to anyone.
The section on agencies and their services is about the Lowell area. The other sections are applicable no matter where you live or work. It is our hope that this guide will help you to make referrals or to obtain services more easily. It will not help you to make diagnoses or assessments for yourself or for others.


We encourage your participation in this guide. If you have suggestions about information or what could be added to any section please let us know
