Maintaining Mental Health As You Age
Wednesday, April 17, 2:00-3:00 pm
Free & Open to All, via Zoom 

Are you having trouble falling asleep at night because you are thinking about the same thing? Do you not feel like going out anymore? Do you know what help is out there for you?  As people age, many experience life changes that can impact mental health, such as a medical illness, death or illness of a loved one, or a job loss. When feelings of grief, social isolation, and loneliness persist, they can lead to depression and anxiety.  

Anxiety in people aged 65 years or older tends to present with somatic complaints and worry rather than as autonomic anxiety, the more common presentation in younger people. Learn about how anxiety may present in older adults. Explore psychosocial therapies and, if necessary, pharmacological treatments that can significantly improve quality of life for seniors.  

This program is sponsored by Suburban Hospital in partnership with FHNN, Little Falls Village, and Greater Stonegate Village.  Our speaker is Dr. Carlos Brown, a social worker at Sibley Hospital.  Please use the Register Now button on this page.  All registrations will be through Suburban Hospital.
