Event Description

Join UCLA geriatric psychiatrist Helen Lavretsky, M.D, as she discusses stress and depression in family members who take care of people with dementia. Dr. Lavretsky will address ways for caregivers to reduce stress as well as available treatments.

Approximately 40 to 70 percent of family caregivers show clinically significant symptoms of depression, and 25 to 50 percent of those caregivers meet the diagnostic criteria for major depression.
Join the conversation on Twitter at @UCLAHealth with hashtag #UCLAMDChat to ask Dr. Lavretsky questions.
