Getting older brings many changes – some we can control and some that we can’t. Cultivating good mental health as we age is important. It helps us stay active and independent and feeds into our sense of self worth.
Research from Monash University shows that for women to have the best-possible mental health, they want others – people and organisations – to treat older women with respect, to provide good health care and to contribute to an environment that valued them and enhanced their independence and sense of self-worth.
We are sharing stories from women about their experiences with getting older. Read more on Mental & Emotional Health https://jeanhailes.org.au/health-a-z/mental-emotional-health.
