Dr. Laura Roberts is joined by Art Walaszek to discuss his recent book Late-Life Depression and Anxiety, which he created using a rich and deep team of contributors. The conversation explores our preconceptions of the aging population and their “default mindset”, how to identify the early-warning signs, mitigating the risk of suicide, access to medical and MH services, and thoughts about the motivations our writers have while creating their books.
