Free Screening for Older Adults at Tri-County
Tri-County Mental Health’s Older Adult Mental Wellness program will celebrate National Fall Prevention Day with free, private screenings for anyone 60 and older Sept. 22.
The 20-minute mental wellness screenings will offer a convenient opportunity to talk with Tri-County specialists about seasonal “blues,” the impact of mental health on physical health and visa versa, forgetfulness, balance or energy questions, and other issues often associated with aging. The screenings are designed to provide a quick assessment to see if you are at risk for a mood disorder or problems that might contribute towards a fall.
