Depression: let’s talk

Depression among older people is common. Yet is it often overlooked. Loneliness and loss of independence are among the causes. Depression can impact on people’s ability to carry out even the simplest everyday tasks, with sometimes devastating consequences for relationships with family and friends. At worst, depression can lead to suicide. Yet depression can be prevented and treated. A better understanding of depression will help reduce the stigma associated with the condition, and lead to more people seeking help.

A man who suffers before it is necessary, suffers more than is necessary.
