Description: P6 is the only inpatient psychiatric program providing multidisciplinary care to geriatric and medically complex patients in the State of Maine. The unit is an extraordinary learning opportunity for advanced year MSW students interested in geriatric mental health and in the interplay of physical and mental illness. Students have the opportunity to facilitate family meetings, provide psycho-education and information about community resources, and make referrals. The student, working closely with the team, refers the patient to the appropriate level of care (e.g., outpatient therapy, partial program, home health services, assisted living, skilled nursing facility, nursing home) and communicates with these after care providers, patient, and family to ensure a successful transition from the hospital.
