Depression is the most common mental health problem in old age, presenting a significant challenge to mental health services for older adults. The high chronicity, relapse and mortality rates associated with late-life depression suggest that existing treatments for late-life depression are insufficient. Therefore, current theoretical understandings may require further development. Given the growing population of older adults, the need to improve our understanding of late-life depression is increasingly urgent.
