Mental health in Older people

With the rapid ageing of our population, the promotion and protection of good mental health in old age are becoming a major societal concern in all EU member states.
It will be easier for Member States to respond to this challenge, good practice on how to detect and treat old age dementia how to better prepare older workers to move from full employment to retirement, how to prevent suicide among and elder abuse, and how to address properly the gender dimension of old age mental health. The scope of the EU demographic challenge makes it all the most urgent for Member States to adopt a holistic approach to healthy ageing, including the promotion of good mental health in old age.
