As the global population ages, all disorders related to ageing are of greater interest to researchers, but none more so than mental disorders. Consequently, geriatric psychiatry has emerged in the last two decades as an important clinical and scientific discipline.
The 2nd Edition of this very successful book brings the reader up-to-date on the most recent advances in this area as well as a diverse range of other fields. Drawing on the knowledge of leading international experts the book encompasses the range of scientific and clinical disciplines relevant to mental health in old age, from neuroscience and molecular pathology, psychology and sociology, to community care, management and organisation.
