Program for Positive Aging


Established in April 2009 as part of the Section of Geriatric Psychiatry at the University of Michigan, this initiative is also supported by the University of Michigan’s Psychiatry Department, Medical School, and Geriatrics Center. Our founding director is Dr. Helen C. Kales. At the PPA, we work to improve the quality of mental-health care and service delivery for older adults, and serve as a resource to older adults and caregivers, health and social-service professionals, and policy makers.
