Senior Depression: Underdiagnosed amongst African Americans?

Steve Manas at Rutgers University published an article for NorthStar News Today: Therapy gap for depressed Black Seniors. Unfortunately, the article itself reads as if it’s drawing fallacious conclusions, and while it provides a link to an abstract, it doesn’t provide a link to the original research in full. But even if the article is a bit hyperbolic, or even potentially incorrect, the issue is still worth noting. There’s no question that seniors can suffer from depression, and we’d do well to make sure treatment is available to those who need it.
