From the Back Cover:

This book illustrates the imperative for late-life depression prevention. It introduces a broad range of approaches to prevention, and provides detailed examples of clinical and research applications of late-life depression prevention – all with consideration of medical and scientific, social, economic and global health perspectives.  Current guidelines and tools for assessing depressive disorders among older adults are discussed, with a view toward applications for prevention. Written by experts in the field, this text also considers policy and economic implications for preventing late-life depression, such as  the many complicating conditions – such as diabetes, hypertension or heart disease – that may co-occur with depression among older adults and that may incur higher total healthcare costs.

 

Prevention of Late-Life Depression: Current Clinical Challenges and Priorities is an important new volume that will be useful to all providers that are concerned with the mental health of our rapidly expanding aged population.

About the Author:

Dr. Okereke is an American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology-certified geriatric psychiatrist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH). She is Assistant Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School and Assistant Professor in Epidemiology at the Harvard T. H. Chan School of Public Health. A graduate of Harvard College and Yale University School of Medicine, she completed a general psychiatry residency at the Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH)/ McLean program and a fellowship in geriatric psychiatry at McLean Hospital. She also completed a Master of Science in Epidemiology degree at Harvard Chan as a National Institutes of Health (NIH) Kirschstein-National Research Service Award recipient. At BWH, she holds appointments as an Associate Psychiatrist in the Department of Psychiatry, where she provides continuity outpatient care in geriatric psychiatry, and also as an Associate Epidemiologist in the Department of Medicine. Additionally, she is a clinical affiliate psychiatrist in the MGH Gerontology Research Unit and Massachusetts Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center. Her programmatic goals are: (1) to employ epidemiologic research methods to identify modifiable risk factors involved in healthy mental aging and (2) to translate and apply knowledge gained into effective strategies for large-scale prevention of major adverse mental aging outcomes, such as late-life depression and cognitive decline. As a Principal Investigator, Dr. Okereke has obtained numerous independent research grants from the National Institutes of Health and private/non-profit foundations. Her peer-reviewed work has appeared in JAMA, JAMA Internal Medicine, Annals of Neurology, JAMA Neurology, American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry, Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, and other scientific journals.
