Gray Matters: Depression in Older Adults

Feelings of sadness, loneliness and grief are normal.  However, when this sadness is intense, it is felt for a long period of time, and interferes with our ability to get along with others or to carry out the activities of every day life .... then it could be depression.

Join NAMI MInnesota to talk about risk factors, warning signs, stigma, treatment, recovery and resources for depression in older adults.

Depression is not a normal part of aging.
