Understanding Depression in Later Life: A Brief Educational Video Series

We would like to share a new resource from NDSU Extension, “Understanding Depression in Later Life: A Brief Educational Video Series.”

This series of 5 short educational videos helps to dispel myths about depression in later life, explores issues related to depression, anxiety, grief and loss, and suicide, and highlights what to watch for and how to find help when dealing with the topic of depression in later life.

This educational video series can be accessed at the NDSU Extension YouTube channel, and can be viewed as a series of short 6- to 12-minute video segments, or as a single video of 25 minutes. 

Presented by NDSU Extension family science specialist, Dr. Sean Brotherson, and NDSU Extension aging specialist, Dr. Jane Strommen, these educational videos are intended to provide brief and helpful overviews of key issues in understanding and managing depression and related topics in later life. It is meant to be of use to individuals and family members, educators, health care workers, mental health workers, assisted living staff, community leaders, and others who work with aging persons. The video clips can be viewed individually or as a group, played and then discussed in one-on-one or group settings, or used in other ways to provide insight as a resource.

Links to the individual video topics include:

We encourage you to share these resources widely in your work settings, community settings, and with family members and friends. We appreciate the opportunity to partner with you in bringing science-based educational resources to the citizens of our region.
