Mental Health and Aging in the post-COVID era
This presentation will review some of the mental health challenges all of us have been experiencing during the pandemic, with a particular emphasis on the impact on older adults and practical strategies for helping aging individuals stay mentally healthy and resilient in difficult times. It will include time for an open discussion to share your own reflections and to answer questions you might have about successful cognitive and psychological aging.
