resource image

Until now, there were no existing guidelines for anxiety in older adults to help support health care providers with assessment and treatment. Older adults also needed access to evidence-based mental health information to help them prevent or manage mental health symptoms and thrive.

The CCSMH engaged with older adults and care partners, health care providers, and community organizations across Canada to deliver these clinical guidelines and tools that will address the stigma around aging and mental health, empower older adults to take steps to support mental health and well-being, and establish best practices for anxiety in older Canadians.

Read the guidelines and other useful resources for health care professionals, care partners, and older adults.
