Abstract

Adults who were age 55 and over were trained to work as case management aides for individuals with serious and persistent mental illness. The training program was a cooperative effort of several state, academic, and private agencies in the New Orleans area, including the department of psychiatry at a state university medical center, the State Office of Mental Health, a consortium of colleges and universities providing educational opportunities for older adults, and the American Association of Retired Persons. The program curriculum included ten weeks of classroom instruction and a four-month field practicum. Of the 14 participants in the initial group of trainees, 13 sought and received employment as case aides. At follow-up three months after employment, supervisors of the case aides rated their job performance as excellent.
