  Healthy IDEAS (Identifying Depression, Empowering Activites for Seniors)
Overview

 

Healthy IDEAS (Identifying Depression, Empowering Activities for Seniors) is an evidence-based program that integrates depression awareness and management into existing case management services provided to older adults. Healthy IDEAS ensures older adults get the help they need to manage symptoms of depression and live full lives.

 

Healthy IDEAS Improves Quality of Life By:

·   Screening for symptoms of depression and assessing their severity

·   Educating older adults and caregivers about depression

·   Linking older adults to primary care and mental health providers

·   Empowering older adults to manage their depression through a behavioral activation approach that encourages involvement in meaningful activities

 

Care for Elders and Baylor College of Medicine manage the dissemination of Healthy IDEAS to potential adopters. Please contact us at HealthyIDEAS@careforelders.org with any questions.
