Thinking about your mental health as the years go by
Everyone ages, and inevitably we all change as the years go by. But common mental health disorders are not an inevitable part of ageing.
A new guide from Age UK about mental health and ageing rightly says:
“Being worried, low, out of sorts, or just struggling to work up the energy to do things you used to enjoy aren’t just part and parcel of getting older –
they’re important signs that you’re not feeling as well as you could be.”
The guide was produced with the help of older people, carers and expert peer reviewers – and is definitely worth a read.
