  • Description:
    In recognition of the essential role mental health plays in overall health, the Healthy Aging Program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Association of Chronic Disease Directors (NACDD) are releasing two issue briefs focused on the mental health of older adults in the United States. This first issue brief reviews existing data and lays the foundation for understanding key issues related to mental health in adults over 50. The second brief will focus on depression, an important and emerging public health issue. Recent public health efforts to develop, test, and disseminate programs that address depression in older adults have led to practical information on this topic; the second issue brief will examine interventions to address depression that communities can use to improve the mental health and quality of life of older Americans.
