Current work-in-progress: an educational video series created for Portland State University's Institute on Aging


Portland State University’s Institute on Aging has a contract from the Oregon Health Authority to help improve mental health services for older people through training and education. One of the things we have learned is that many people (including those who provide social, health, and mental health services), lack understanding about how most people experience aging.

To address this issue, we are preparing training and education materials on age-related changes that will feature videos of older adults describing and going about their daily lives, what is important to them, and their reflections about growing older.
