Age-Related Depression, Mood and Stress

Overview

About 15% of older adults have depression but half of them do not get care even though depression in older adults is treatable. Depression can be often overlooked in older adults because it may be viewed as a symptom of a different condition (e.g. fatigue, abdominal pain, headache, confusion, memory loss). Depression may also  be mistaken as a part of “normal aging.”
