Mental Health Resources for Seniors – Hub

Mental health among seniors is a topic that isn’t commonly discussed, but is becoming increasingly important in recent years. The COVID-19 pandemic saw an extreme increase of anxiety and depression disorders among seniors, with over 20 million older adults reporting these symptoms since April 2020. We focus on an overall approach to wellness for older adults, which includes mental health. We’ve compiled our mental health resources for seniors below, as well as articles by our partner WellQOr and articles on mental health during the end-of-life process.
