The CDC estimates that 20% of older adults will experience a mental health concern. However, the stigma associated with a diagnosis can prevent an older person from participating in activities, programs and services that help to maintain independence and well being in the community. As the Department of Senior Services strives to promote healthy lifestyles and enhance the quality of life with older adults, we must address barriers in partnership with the community. By joining the Anti-Stigma campaign, we can help older adults to have the conversation that has been off limits, and engage them through the many beneficial programs the Department has to offer.
