HOPE and Senior Peer Counseling

Service Category: 

  • Mental Health Services

Description: 

Provides comprehensive assessment, counseling, and consultation to people over the age of 60 and who are suffering from mental illness. The HOPE Program team uses a multi-disciplinary approach and is comprised of mental health practitioners, nurse practitioners, a public guardian and a psychiatrist. An extensive assessment process is conducted in order to determine eligibility. Once eligibility is met, services will focus on promoting mental health, housing issues, medication and physical health conditions.

Senior Peer Counseling is also for people over the age of 60 but the focus is on supporting those who would benefit from a little extra support in their lives. Support is provided by trained volunteers who receive weekly supervision from a licensed MFT and/or Registered Nurse. Decreasing isolation, issues of aging, grief, and depression are common issues addressed in Senior Peer Counseling.
