Chronic Mental Problems

Chronic Mental Problems
According to the World Health Organization, over 15 percent of adults over the age of 60 suffer from a mental disorder. A common mental disorder among seniors is depression, occurring in seven percent of the elderly population. Unfortunately, this mental disorder is often underdiagnosed and undertreated.

It is hard to talk about a middle ground for something that is a fundamental right.
