The complexity of the inter-relationship between aging processes, existing chronic physical and mental illnesses, and the emergence of new mental illnesses later in life will be analyzed. Issues of gender, race, culture, and ethnicity in aging adults that impact the expression of mental illness and responses to appropriate treatment will be examined.
