Sometimes as people age, life gets easier. They can spend time with their grandchildren, or pursue hobbies. For some, though, life gets harder. How can one avoid becoming depressed? What are the warning signs of depression? When should one try self-help strategies and when does one need to reach out for help? If someone does decide to reach out, where should they turn and what can they expect? This talk will answer these questions and more!
