Besides managing decreased performance in physical and cognitive functioning, older adults also face changes such as retirement and departure of grown up children.

The World Health Organization defines mental health positively as "…a state of well-being in which the individual realises his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community".
Learn how to enhance your mental health to be confident of yourself, cope with the new challenges in life, and participate actively in the community.
