    Just as young people have specific mental health issues and needs, so too do older Australians.

    • Generational differences in mental health attitudes and experiences
    • Common types of mental illness for older people
    • Signs, symptoms and causes
    • Specialised communication skills
    • Care-giver strategies
    • Tools and resources
