Promoting Mental Health Equity as We Age Through Trauma and Resilience Lenses

Trauma-informed care and resilience are emerging as important paradigms to address the pervasiveness of psychological challenges across the life cycle and their association to mitigate significant adverse mental health consequences for older adults. To achieve mental health equity, in which all people have the opportunity for better mental and physical wellbeing, it is crucial that we promote psychological resilience as a key factor in improving mental health outcomes and attenuating psychosocial trauma in older adults, especially those from marginalized communities.

This series of webcasts from the Beyond Generations Summit at On Aging 2024 previews content from the Spring 2024 Generations Journal on Mental Health, Aging, and Resilience.
