Clinical Guidelines

The CCSMH is engaging with older adults and care partners, health care providers, and community organizations across Canada to deliver clinical guidelines and tools that will address the stigma around aging and mental health, empower older adults to take steps to support mental health and well-being, and establish best practices for anxiety in older Canadians.

There are currently no existing guidelines for anxiety in older adults to help support health care providers with assessment and treatment.  Older adults also need access to good evidence-based mental health information to help them prevent or manage mental health symptoms and thrive.

Healthcare providers: We would like your thoughts about making anxiety guidelines that work for you and your patients.  Please complete this 5-minute survey.

If you have some experience or interest in the topic of anxiety in older adults, we would love to hear from you! Please email Titus Chan, Engagement Lead, at: TChan@ccsmh.ca.
