What Depression Looks Like in Older Adults
Depression is a medical illness that includes symptoms that can look very much like other illnesses, some of which can cause depression. Older adults may not exhibit some of the typical symptoms. The right anti-depressant medication and counseling combined has been proven to be very effective in the treatment of depression. There are some misconceptions about depression and anti-depressant medication that keep people from seeking the help that can relieve the terrible pain and feelings of hopelessness that are a part of depression. Come get the facts for yourself or a loved one. Presented by Connie Boston, MSW, Senior Peer Prevention Program.
