Depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues are not a normal part of aging. Yet, one in four older adults experiences a mental health disorder, a number that is expected to double in the next decade. If you or someone you love is struggling, we can help. At SUN, we offer programs to help older adults cope and take control of their own healing.
Some people are forced to deal with chronic mental illness throughout their whole life, but mental health problems can also appear late in life. Issues can arise in response to a stroke, dementia, Parkinson’s disease, cancer, diabetes, and even through some medications. As one of the country’s most comprehensive behavioral health organizations, SUN works to make life better and create positive outcomes for older patients dealing with mental health issues. Our psychiatrists and master’s level therapists are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to help you on your road to recovery.
