NAMI San Diego and UCSD release new documentary on depression and seniors
Depression is often thought as a “normal” part of aging, but it is not. A new documentary video from the NAMI San Diego sheds light on what depression in seniors looks like and what can be done to help.
Partnering with UCSD’s Dr. Sidney Zisook, a Professor of Psychiatry and a leading researcher on depression, this collaborative video puts a face on senior depression and dispels many of the myths that surround it. Copies will be available for a donation on August 18, 2008 from NAMI San Diego. For more information contact, Shannon Jaccard at 619-584-5564 x311
