No, Depression is Not a Normal Part of Aging
Take charge of your mental health and recognize the difference between feeling “down” and clinical depression…..This episode brings to light a topic that is often overlooked – mental health among the elderly, with our highly esteemed guest, Amanda Marker. She’s not just the director of business development for Windmoor Healthcare, but also a licensed mental health counselor.
While age is just a number, it seems the world often forgets that. We examine the darker side of ageism, observing how it can lead to depression, isolation, and increased suicide risk.
To end on a positive note, we explore the steps to improve mental health in seniors. As the holiday season approaches, we also address the deep-seated stigma surrounding mental health and how to manage it.
