May is Mental Health Awareness Month

As we age, we may experience life changes that impact our mental health.

  • It’s never too late to get help.
  • It is important to remember that older adults may have different mental health symptoms. For example, a lack of interest in some activities.
  • Talking about mental health can help older adults feel more comfortable asking for support.
  • Mental health treatment can be part of a wellness program to help older adults live happy and fulfilling lives.
  • Mental health professionals can help older adults cope with life changes.
  • Friends and family can experience meaningful mutual connection by spending time visiting with older adults.
  • Mental health is important at every age. Spending time with friends and family can boost older adults’ mental and physical health.

If you or a loved one is experiencing or affected by a mental health, substance use, or suicidal crisis, please call or text ‘988’ (or chat online on 988 Suicide & Crisis Lifeline’s website) for free, confidential, and immediate help.
