What is Awareness Week?

Today, there are roughly 1 billion people aged 60 or older, a number now projected to exceed 2 billion by 2050. Of these, approximately 20% will have mental health conditions such as dementia, depression, anxiety, and substance use, often complicated by physical and psychosocial comorbidities culminating in disability. IPA is focused on raising awareness around the impact of ageism on health outcomes and supporting the protection of the human rights of older persons with mental health conditions.

IPA will use its platform to highlight both older persons' mental health issues as well as promoting healthy aging initiatives around the globe through Older Adult Mental Health Awareness Week from 1 October through 10 October 2023.
