(EOEA), the Massachusetts Departments of Mental Health (DMH) and

Americans (MAOA) organized and sponsored an “invitation only” summit

directors, health economists, providers, advocates and other leaders
engaged in a day-long conversation on the challenges presented by the
coming wave of older citizens with behavioral health needs. This report
