The National Alliance on Mental Illness estimates that depression affects more than 6.5 million Americans aged 65 years or older. Depression is a true medical condition that can improve with treatment and support. I’m pleased to welcome Oakwood-affiliated psychiatrist Dr. Gregory Mahr back to the program. Dr. Mahr treats patients in his Dearborn office and is with us to provide perspectives on how depression impacts seniors – and how treatment can help.
