Aging and Mental Health Training
One in four older adults experiences some mental health concern, including depression, anxiety disorders, and dementia. This number is expected to double to 15 million by 2030.
These mental health issues can jeopardize housing, cause serious issues for communities, and increase older adults’ risk for suicide. Mental health is increasingly a concern of housing and community service providers, especially with a rise in social isolation and community stress.
