Serving Seniors Community Partner Named Behavioral Health Person of the Year

May 29, 2014 - Serving Seniors

Serving Seniors has developed an extensive network of over 30 providers and collaborative partners to extend and enhance the services we provide. Partners include educational institutions such as San Diego State University, UC San Diego, University of San Diego and Cal Western School of Law. We also partner with health care agencies such as Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital and Mission Home Health to provide health screenings and assessments. Partners utilize space at the Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center or one of our other facilities, allowing seniors to have access to these importance services in one location.

Carol Neidenberg, one of our wonderful community partners, is being presented with the Behavioral Health Person of the Year award on May 30 for her commitment and leadership as a champion against the stigma of mental illness. Carol is the Program Manager for the Consumer Center for Health Education and Advocacy. Carol and her team have worked with Serving Seniors for over 10 years to promote the wellbeing of low-income seniors using the organization’s computer labs and offering assistance with health care, public benefits and legal problems. Carol is a well-known advocate for the rights of mental health clients, the homeless and older adults. We appreciate Carol’s hard work and dedication to Serving Seniors over the past decade.
