Mental Illness in Geriatrics

Mental health is essential to overall health and well-being, it must be recognized and treated in older adults, with the same urgency as physical health. The most common conditions of mental health in elderly include dementia, anxiety, severe cognitive impairment, and mood disorders (such as depression or bipolar disorder). Geriatric psychiatrists play an vital role in the treatment of disorders that occur in elderly. Psychologists provide services to older adults in a variety of settings, including healthcare facilities, community-based private or group practices, and places where older adults reside-in their homes, long-term care, and assisted-living facilities, and hospices. Psychologists collaborate with a variety of professionals, including medical and other mental health care services providers, to ensure comprehensive care.
