McLean Hospital clinicians are experts in older adult mental health, including treatment, research, and education for conditions both unique to older adults (like dementia, Alzheimer’s disease, memory impairment) and those with unique challenges for people in this age group (such as depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety).

Psychiatric care of older adults can include managing the normal effects of mental and physical changes of aging, and also focuses on the psychological and neurological changes that can worsen as the body and brain get older. According to the World Health Organization, mental health and neurological disorders among older adults account for 6.6% of the total disability for this age group, and approximately 15% of adults aged 60 and over live with a mental health disorder.
