The Carter Burden Network, which manages the newly invigorated Roosevelt Island Senior Center, recorded two days of full house attendance of training for Mental Health First Aid for Older Adults. Presented by ThriveNYC, the event was so successful that Lynne Strong-Shinozaki, who coordinated through the RIRA Common Council and Community Board 8, thinks it might become a model for the rest of the city. She shared some photos.
