Summary This book illustrates the imperative for late-life depression prevention. It introduces a broad range of approaches to prevention, and provides detailed examples of clinical and research applications of late-life depression prevention ? all with consideration of medical and scientific, social, economic and global health perspectives. Current guidelines and tools for assessing depressive disorders among older adults are discussed, with a view toward applications for prevention. Written by experts in the field, this text also considers policy and economic implications for preventing late-life depression, such as the many complicating conditions ? such as diabetes, hypertension or heart disease ? that may co-occur with depression among older adults and that may incur higher total healthcare costs. Prevention of Late-Life Depression: Current Clinical Challenges and Priorities is an important new volume that will be useful to all providers that are concerned with the mental health of our rapidly expanding aged population.
