Alisoun Milne explores the influences of life experiences, structural inequalities, socio-political context, history, gender, and age-related factors, engaging with new ways of thinking about preventing promoting mental health in later life. Drawing together material from a number of different fields Mental health in later life analyzes the meaning and determinants of mental health among older populations and offers a critical review of contemporary debates on ageing and mental health for students, professionals, policy makers, and researchers.
