Depression in Late-Life RFP
Archstone Foundation has released an RFP for the Care Partners: Bridging Families, Clinics, and Communities to Advance Late-Life Depression Care Phase 2, Cohort 2.
Working in collaboration with Jürgen Unützer, MD, MPH, MA, at the University of Washington’s AIMS Center (Advancing Integrated Mental Health Solutions), and Ladson Hinton, MD, at the University of California, Davis, Archstone Foundation has supported community-engaged partners who worked together to improve care for older adults with depression by strengthening the involvement of family, friends, and community-based organizations (CBOs) in depression care.
Based on the success and experience of the first cohort of projects, Archstone Foundation now seeks to support a second cohort of projects that are implementing innovative approaches to treating depression in older adults through the following three types of partnerships:
- Primary Care Clinic – CBO Partnership: a primary care clinic that has implemented collaborative care and now seeks to partner with a CBO;
- PEARLS – Primary Care Clinic Partnership: a CBO-based PEARLS site strengthening their program by forming stronger connections with primary care clinic(s); and
- Primary Care Clinic – Family Partnership: a primary care clinic that has implemented collaborative care and now seeks to enhance their model by including family members.
The full background, description, and guidelines for this funding opportunity are included in the Request for Proposals (RFP), below.
