Mental health is as important as physical health, yet almost 50% of those suffering from depression or anxiety will not seek medical support, in part, due to stigma.
On Tuesday October 23, join Women’s Brain Health Initiative and AGE-WELL and two expert panelists weigh in on the difference between brain health and mental heath. Discover how we can maintain our cognitive vitality, stimulate our brains as we age, reduce the stigma attached to mental health issues, and explore whether women are at greater risk.
Featuring Dr. Nasreen Khatri, Clinical Psychologist, Gerontologist & Researcher, Rotman Research Institute, Baycrest and Dr. Andrea Iaboni, Clinician Researcher, Geriatric Psychiatrist, Toronto Rehabilitation Institute, Assistant Professor, Department of Psychiatry, University of Toronto.
Moderated by Dorina Simeonov, Policy & Knowledge Mobilization Manager at AGE-WELL.
This event is part of the MIND MATTERS: WOMEN’S BRAIN HEALTH AND TECHNOLOGY series and will be recorded and made available online.
