Jason Young, MS
Jason has 10 years experience with serving seniors in several capacities. He began within the nursing home setting providing outpatient mental health treatment to hundreds of residents living in long-term care facilities as a masters level geriatric clinician. His areas of responsibility included assessment, treatment, education, consultation, behavior management planning, staff training, and family support. After serving as a clinician for 3 years, Jason became the program director of the same organization. It was during this time period that he began to speak publicly within in-service trainings and symposiums on subjects such as Alzheimer's disease.
The position Mr. Young works within today is as a geriatric clinician / marketer / speaker for a healthcare company serving a geriatric inpatient psychiatric unit housed within a hospital. He completes all the clinical assessments of candidates being considered for inpatient geriatric psychiatric treatment and marketing to potential referral sources and established partners in patient care. One of his greatest joys is in providing education to referring organizations and community agencies. Speaking to individuals and groups of people, no matter from what discipline they come, is something he is deeply passionate about. The fact that he places such importance on motivating others to provide better care by their attaining new skills, education, and resources makes him a fantastic addition to our team of experts.
Jason has a Masters Degree in Science majoring in Community Agency Counseling. He also has a Bachelors Degree in Social Work majoring in Social Work. Both these degrees were attained within nationally accredited programs located at Jacksonville State University in Alabama.
