Retirement is one of the biggest changes in an adult’s life. Big
life changes are often accompanied by stress, stress can be a primary
risk factor for depression, and depression is often accompanied with anxiety.
One in five adults will experience a mental illness in their life according
to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
To learn more about anxiety and depression risk factors, symptoms, and
treatments please join
