Depression is one of the most commonly occurring psychiatric disorders among adults ages 50 years and older with 12-month prevalence rates of major depressive disorder ranging from 2.6% to 7.7% (Kessler et al., 2010). The duration and likelihood of relapse of depressive episodes tends to increase with age (Kessler et al., 2010; Mitchell and Subramaniam, 2005). Treatment guidelines recommend antidepressant medication or psychotherapy for adults with at least moderate levels of depression (DGPPN et al., 2017; Gelenberg et al., 2010).
