Program Description: Early Intervention Services for Older Adults serves adults 60 years of age and older who are at risk of or who are experiencing the early onset of a behavioral health condition. The program targets unserved or underserved populations and individuals who have not sought out services due to social isolation, the stigma associated with behavioral health conditions, or cultural or linguistic barriers. The program provides trained, culturally and linguistically competent case managers and life coaches who provide services in the homes of participants. Participants receive a comprehensive assessment and case management services. The program facilitates linkages to other behavioral health, medical and community resources. Other services include educational/skill building workshops, support groups, recreational activities and transportation support services.
