Late Life Disorders/Geriatric Psychiatry

Statistics show that 15 percent of Americans age 65 and older experience clinical depression. In older people, depression may result from having multiple medical conditions which impair quality of life. Depression may also be fueled by the loss of friends, isolation, and frustration caused by no longer being able to do what one could do when he or she was younger. Moreover, depression in elderly patients may require a different approach than the care of depression in younger adults. NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital features world-renowned specialists in geriatric psychiatry and offers inpatient and outpatient care that integrates medication and psychotherapy.


Jeffrey A. Lieberman, M.D., the Psychiatrist-in-Chief at NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center, discusses the warning signs of depression.
