I had the good fortune to attend a conference in December called “Addressing Aging and Mental Health in a Multi-Cultural Society,” sponsored by the Massachusetts Association of Older Americans and the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health. I say “good fortune” because it turned out to be a very informative, well-presented, and, at times, moving day centered on issues that have great relevance for those of us who work with seniors at JF&CS. All of us work with immigrants—Russian immigrants, Holocaust survivors who are originally from a range of countries, and many others as well.
