Aging Well Means Taking Care of Your (Mental) Health

May is both Older Americans Month and Mental Health Month. Aging well means more than just taking care of your body, eating right, and exercising. Aging well also includes taking care of your mental health. The National Coalition on Mental Health and Aging and the National Council for Behavioral Health are sponsoring a Twitter chat on May 18th at 2pm to bring awareness to the issue of aging and mental health, including addressing substance abuse and elder abuse. We’ve gathered some resources from the NIDILRR community to add to the very comprehensive list offered by NCMHA in support of these two important observances.

We’ll be sharing these and other resources on May 18th as part of the #BH365 Twitter chat. See you there!
