    Title: Positive Minds – Strong Bodies: Building Community Capacity for Disability Prevention for Minority Elders

     

    Summary:

    Chinese elders represent a rapidly increasing segment of an aging U.S. population, with less access to mental health care, suffering significant disparities in access and quality care, and augmented risk for disability. Fresh approaches are needed that move services into the community to meet potential elder needs in a culturally and linguistically competent environment that is inherently embedded in the client’s neighborhood. To address these disparities and prevent disability among Chinese elders, the Positive Minds- Strong Bodies study examines how to successfully build collaborative research for the provision of evidence-based mental health and disability prevention treatments in community-based organizations (CBOs) that serve Chinese elderly clients. This presentation will provide an overview of the mental health burden in Chinese, gaps in mental health services, preliminary data on the study population, a description of study aims, details of the multi-level intervention, and process for referring Chinese patients.
