As the numbers of adult residents impacted by PTSD, mental disorders, brain injury, and substance use disorders continue to increase in long term care, ensuring staff possess the competency and skill sets to address mental health will take on a new significance. Maintaining a caregiving environment that supports positive psychosocial functioning requires that staff understand how PTSD, mental disorders, brain injury, and substance use disorders differ from dementia to ensure appropriate care and services are provided. This session offers a framework for developing an assessment and person-centered approach to care planning that will prove successful for this emerging population of younger, more complicated adults.
Learning Objectives: At the conclusion of this session, participants will be able to:
1. Explain the importance of a holistic assessment in meeting the mental health needs of adult residents impacted by PTSD, mental disorders, brain injury, and substance use disorders; 2. Describe the systems and approaches utilized to improve access to clinical and psychosocial support and resources; and
3. Demonstrate how meeting the mental health needs of adult residents impacted PTSD, mental disorders, brain injury, and substance use disorder improves mood and behavior, and enhances quality of life.
