If you care for parents or elders and are concerned they may be dealing with depression, anxiety or other mental health issues, you’ll want to attend January’s Boomers, Elders & More session.

Dr. Megan P. Simmons, assistant professor of nursing at Vanderbilt School of Nursing, will address mental and emotional health in older adults. In this session you will learn about the criteria that lead to a diagnosis of depression or anxiety (frequency, duration, etc.). She also will discuss the most common symptoms in older adults, as well as treatment options and resources available for those experiencing symptoms.

Mental Health in the Elderly
