Aging and Mental Health
Increasing numbers of persons and their families are experiencing uncomfortable and disabling mental health conditions during the aging process. The National Alliance of New Hampshire published a comprehensive report on the issues of aging and mental health issues, called “Mental Health, Mental Illness, Healthy Aging”.
The National Coalition on Mental Health and Aging provides on their website a listing of contacts for information and services related to aging issues.
For finding local and state services to seniors with mental health issues, the Eldercare Locator, created by the Federal Department of Health and Human Services, can be useful.
