Mental Illness in the Elderly

Elderly mental health is an important area of healthcare. When overlooked, deterioration of mental health among the elderly can lead to larger issues of elderly suicide. Elderly care should also include mental health care.

Common elderly mental health disorders include delirium, dementia and depression. If you notice your loved one exhibiting signs of mental illness, it is advised to seek professional help and engage a counsellor or therapist.
