Feelings of sadness, loneliness and grief are normal. However, when this sadness is intense, is felt for a long period of time, interferes with our ability to get along with others, or prevents us from carrying out the activities of everyday life…then it could be depression. Depression is not a normal part of aging.
Join National Alliance Mental Illness of Minnesota to talk about risk factors, warning signs, stigma, discrimination, treatment, recovery, and resources for depression in older adults. Suicide prevention resources will also be briefly discussed.
