The second in the 2023 Series of Mancos Wellness Talks, “Emotional & Cognitive Health …Aging Into Your Best Self” focuses on mental health and brain health –  Emotional and cognitive health are essential for a happy and fulfilling life at any age. Enjoy these resources to learn how to improve your mental health, brain health, and overall well-being.

Brain changes are a natural part of the aging process. As we age, our brains undergo changes that can impact our mental health. These changes can affect our memory, attention, and other cognitive functions. Mental health conditions are more common in adulthood starting around college age and increasing to older adulthood. Older adults may be more vulnerable to mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety. These conditions can be caused by a variety of factors, including changes in brain chemistry, stress, and social isolation. Join this talk to learn about ways to help yourself maintain good cognitive and emotional health through the years, to manage your symptoms, and improve your quality of life.

The Mancos Wellness Talks are hosted by Cloud Goddess Enterprises and Mancos Public Library.

As always, The Mancos Wellness Talks are free and open to the public!
