This book illustrates the imperative for late-life depression prevention, introducing a broad range of approaches to prevention and provides detailed examples of clinical applications of late-life depression prevention - all with consideration of medical and scientific, social, economic and global health perspectives. Clear guidelines are delineated for assessing, treating and preventing such conditions as depression and anxiety, dementia, psychosis and mania, sleep disturbances and personality disorders. Written by experts in the field, this text considers the complicating conditions that depression may incur higher costs and create during the course and treatment of comorbid major medical conditions that are also highly prevalent in older adults - including diabetes, hypertension and heart disease. Prevention of Late-Life Depression: Current Clinical Challenges and Priorities is an important new volume that will be useful to all providers that are concerned with the mental health of our rapidly expanding aged population.
