Depression affects between 10-15% of older people, making it the most frequently encountered mental health condition in later life. Despite this, the condition is easily missed in clinical practice or not adequately treated. Part of the Oxford Psychiatry Library, this second edition ofDepression in Later Life highlights areas of depression which are of special relevance to later life, how to diagnose depression in an older person, the overlap with dementia and various other physical illnesses, and important pharmacological and psychological considerations. All chapters have beenupdated with new data where relevant, and case vignettes are included to ensure the book is relatable and easy to read.
Robert Baldwin has been a Consultant in Old Age Psychiatry at Manchester Royal Infirmary since 1985 and Honorary Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Manchester since 2000. His main research interest is mood disorders in later life, on which he has published widely.
