In response to the alarming rise in mental illnesses such as depression and anxiety – and the dearth of mental health providers – we have created a conference to train Primary Care Physicians to more confidently care for their late-life patients with these conditions.
This FREE, fully virtual conference, “Geriatric Psychiatry for Non-Psychiatrists: The University of Arizona and Banner - University Health Plan Update on Late-Life Mental Health” on Saturday, Nov 4, 2023 will provide practical and actionable knowledge on best clinical practices for the behavioral healthcare of older patients. This program has special relevance for providers participating in the Arizona Longer Term Care System (ALTCS) and Home and Community Based Services (HCBS) program.

Access to mental health care is a right, not a privilege. We aim to empower PCPs with new clinical skills to enhance access to care, improve comorbid medical conditions, and reduce the stigma of seeking treatment for mental illness.
