New Blog: Supporting the Behavioral Health of Older Americans

As a practicing geriatric psychiatrist for more than 15 years, I’ve seen firsthand the mental and physical toll that anxiety, depression and other mental health conditions have taken on older adults, especially when left untreated for years.

In this blog from the American Hospital Association, Dr. Arpan Waghray, CEO, Providence’s Well Being Trust, discusses how we can support the behavioral health needs of older adults.

In addition to May being Mental Health Awareness Month, it’s also Older Americans Month. Take a look at this blog to learn more about common mental health concerns for adults and to view mental health resources that support older adults.
