This webinar focuses on effective assessment and treatment of communication challenges in adults with diagnosed mental health conditions, a growing and often underserved population. The speakers explore how disease progression and medication can affect an individual’s behaviors, social interactions, and communication.

You will be able to:
- explain the key contributions SLPs can make when working with patients who present with mental health diagnoses
- identify assessment tools to create appropriate goals with objective measures for patients experiencing communication deficits as a result of mental health diagnoses and related issues
- explain the SLP’s role in interdisciplinary discussions about reducing anti-psychotic medication use in elderly patients living inside and outside long-term care facilities
