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.
