Sponsor an Age-Friendly DC Community Consultation for your Community

Together we can make the District of Columbia a friendlier place for those of all ages.

The District of Columbia is working to become an inclusive and accessible urban environment. Age-Friendly DC is part of an international effort started by the World Health Organization to respond to two significant demographic trends: urbanization and a rapidly aging population.


Where to Get Help

Find a Service Provider


DBH contracts with community based providers to provide mental health services and supports. You can contact a provider of your choice directly or call the Access Helpline for assistance. DBH certifies each provider to ensure conformity to federal and District regulations and monitors quality of care.

Help for Stressful Economic Times

Depression and anxiety are normal reactions to abnormal times or stress. With increased concerns about losing jobs, homes and savings, more people are showing signs of psychological distress. It’s important for us all to learn to recognize the symptoms of depression so we can get help for ourselves or for others when it’s needed.

I Am the Difference
Sometimes we just need someone
to listen to our problems to feel better.
