The Center for Mental Health Policy and Services Research at the University of Pennsylvania, in partnership with the Office of Mental Health & Substance Abuse Services (OMHSAS) and the Pennsylvania Department of Aging (PDA), is excited to bring you the Certified Older Adult Peer Specialist Program! 

COAPS is a training and employment initiative with the goal of helping older adults with behavioral health issues improve their quality of life.

We have been working with Dartmouth on a depression IMR technology intervention for use by older adults with SMI named PeerTECH in Massachusetts.  It is up for a Scattergood Foundation award – can you please vote for it? 

PeerTECH is a finalist to win $25,000 from the Scatterfood Foundation. Can you please vote for us today?
