Key resources for older adults

This booklet provides some practical and evidence based suggestions to help you strengthen your social network.
  • Anxiety and depression in older people – This booklet provides information about anxiety and depression in older people, tips for keeping active, information on beyondblue programs and interviews with Australians aged over 80 about how they stay mentally healthy.
  • What works to promote emotional wellbeing in older people: A guide for community or residential aged care staff – This booklet covers a range of interventions that can be used to promote emotional wellbeing or to help people with anxiety or depression. It summarises the strength of evidence for each intervention and gives case studies to show how the interventions have been used with older people.
  • A guide to what works for depression – A comprehensive, evidence-based overview of all known treatments for depression and their effectiveness. Includes medical, psychological, complementary and lifestyle interventions.
  • A guide to what works for anxiety – There is a wide range of treatments for anxiety conditions. While each treatment has its supporters, treatments vary a lot in how much supporting scientific evidence is behind them. The aim of this booklet is to assist people to make informed choices by providing a summary of what the scientific evidence says about each treatment.
