My project was focused on mental health in the older population. It highlighted gaps in skills and knowledge. This group is frequently overlooked because of their age. They are often unable to access the right resources or care when managing mental health issues. By providing resources and educational material specifically tailored to address common issues such as anxiety or depression, my project sought to raise awareness of the important role that mental health plays in this population. Additionally, I created a safe place for senior citizens to discuss their mental illnesses without fear or judgement.
By doing so, I hoped that those who participated would gain an improved understanding of how mental health can affect one’s overall wellbeing regardless of age as well as practical tools for self-care. As a healthcare professional, I wanted to raise awareness on the best ways to provide access and advocate for those with psychiatric disorders. This initiative ultimately helped to bridge the gap between the facts and the actions needed in order to improve mental health outcomes for this population.
