Watch a video about: Seniors and Depression (sorry under construction!!)

Click on the link above to watch CMHA-NL's educational video about seniors and depression in long term care. (Length: 18 minutes).

About the video: First launched in October 2008, the video was developed to address a need in this province to help front-line health care providers better understand depression in seniors. Although it was originally intended for long term care settings, it is a useful educational tool for seniors, family members and caregivers, health care providers and others in many different settings.
