Did you know that depression is the most common mental health problem in older people?
According to Johns Hopkins, about 1 in 4 American adults suffers from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year. And due to the population aging, the number of seniors with mental disorders is expected to double by 2030.
There are constantly articles written about superfoods, exercise, and other techniques aimed at younger adults. But what about the older generation – especially given the stigma that a lot of elderly people believe surrounding mental health issues? It is widely accepted that this is something that needs to be dealt with alone or ignored completely.
