Our mental health is just as important as our physical health. As we get older, changes in our lives, such as bereavement, illness or retirement, can make us more vulnerable to depression and anxiety. This can mean we need a bit of extra support, but it's important to remember that poor mental health is not always part of ageing. Everyone feels sad from time to time, but if someone is struggling to cope, help is available. This guide explains what mental health is and what might make someone vulnerable to depression. It also has guidance on where someone can go for help, and things someone can do to help themselves and stay well.
