Innovative Services for Seniors
To serve the needs of the fast-growing senior population in the Bronx, primarily of Hispanic background, RMHA designed a multi-tiered program which includes outreach, evidence-based assessments to identify seniors at risk for mental health difficulties, and groups which provide psychoeducation and support. We also provide psychiatric home visits—unique to our program—and consultations to families as well as bilingual and bicultural psychotherapy and case management.
This year, ISS reached a total of 1,385 participants through presentations and workshops. Over 100 seniors participated regularly in our therapy groups and 180 received screenings.
RMHA is grateful to Councilman Andrew Cohen, The Jarvis and Constance Doctorow Foundation and The Freed Family Foundation for their generosity and support of the Innovative Services for Seniors Program.
