Seniors and Mental Health
As seniors, we know the importance of keeping ourselves healthy. Whether it’s through regular doctor visits, medication, getting exercise, or eating well, the key to a long and enjoyable life centers around wellness. But what about our mental health? Too often we dismiss feelings of depression or anxiety as simply being a part of life. However, when these begin to take over our lives, it’s important to understand these may be the first symptoms of mental illness. In this whitepaper from Life Settlement Advisors, we will examine the current state of mental health in seniors, as well as some common mental disorders, symptoms of disease, and treatment options.
