Mental Health & Aging Project

The Mental Health & Aging Project (MHAP), funded by the Michigan Department of Community Health, is a program unit at Lansing Community College.

Since 1985, the project has offered education, training, and consultation for clinicians in Michigan's community mental health (CMH) system who provide services for older adults. The project also assists individuals in the aging network and other service systems who work with older adults with mental illness, dementia, and/or developmental disabilities in a wide variety of settings.
