Care Partners: Bridging Families, Clinics, and Communities to Advance Late-Life Depression Care

Archstone Foundation has announced the Care Partners: Bridging Families, Clinics, and Communities to Advance Late-Life Depression Care Request for Proposal (RFP). One of the most promising approaches to improving late-life depression care is through the systematic involvement of community-based organizations (CBOs), family, and primary care clinics that work with older adults. These community-engaged partnerships have tremendous potential to improve: 1) access to care; 2) engagement in treatment; 3) the patient care experience; and 4) quality of depression care for older adults. Archstone is accepting letters of inquiry from California-based CBOs and Primary Care Clinics for this project through January 16, 2015. Webinars to discuss the RFP will be held on November 17, 2014 and January 5, 2014. >>Read More
