Service Program for Older People

Education and Training

We offer Training & Education workshops and seminars at social service agencies, senior centers and other organizations in Manhattan that serve older adults.  The workshops entirely free of charge and provide basic skills and knowledge that can empower staff to respond to the mental health needs of adults.
