Well-being in later life: The mind plays an important role
"Ageing itself is not inevitably associated with a decline in mood and quality of life," says Prof. Karl-Heinz Ladwig, summarizing the results. "It is rather the case that psychosocial factors such as depression or anxiety impair subjective well-being," the Head of the Mental Health Research Group at the Institute of Epidemiology II, Helmholtz Zentrum Munchen and Professor of Psychosomatic Medicine at the TUM University Hospital explains. "And in the case of women, living alone also pays an important role."
