Depression and Anxiety in Older Adults Living in Public Housing

Anxiety and depression are common in older adult public housing residents and frequently co-occur.

In public housing residents, late-life anxiety and depression symptoms were moderately correlated. Anxiety symptom severity correlates were largely consistent with those found for depression symptom severity.

The broad distribution of correlates across demographic, social, medical, and behavioral domains suggests the context of late-life anxiety and depression symptomatology in public housing is complex and multidisciplinary collaborative care approaches may be warranted in future interventions.

For more info, see Simning et al. (2012). The characteristics of anxiety and depression symptom severity in older adults living in public housing. International Psychogeriatrics, 24(4), 614-623.
