The Doctor Is In: Depression & Mental Health
April 13 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Life changes that take place as we get older may affect our mental health, causing feelings of uneasiness, stress, and sadness. Losing loved ones and relationships, experiencing grief, and dealing with the effects of chronic illnesses can all impact our emotional wellbeing. While experiencing some emotional stress is a normal part of aging, older adults also face an increased risk of depression. Depression is a treatable medical decision but often goes unreported or misdiagnosed, especially among older adults.
Join the LGBT Elder Initiative and Jefferson Health for this month’s “Doctor Is In” webinar to discuss mental health and depression. We will discuss the signs and symptoms of depression and the resources available to those who are in need of additional support for their mental health. We’ll also explore ways that we can all take better care of our mental health and emotional wellness.
Support for this program is provided by Jefferson Health.
