Depression in Older Adults

older aging depression nimh booklet

Many seniors feel tired, sad and lonely as they age. I began the Happy Flower Day Project in May of 2013. It started out as my little way of helping older folks, and maybe   lift depression for people going through lots of changes – death of family members and friends, medical ailments, or stressful life experiences. More than 28,000 bouquets have been passed out so far.

I have 2 faithful volunteers. My mother, Claire, is 87-years-old and my  friend Bob is  91-years-old.
