Special Session 3: Old Age & Mental Health

“Good memory, clear mind, high physical activity, adequate perception of reality, interest in what is happening around – these are the elements that make life at an old age, the most “quality”, pleasant and comfortable. These factors are also critical for the definition of “mental health” of an old man. It has also been proved that the psychological basis of longevity is the feeling of happiness, which, in turn, depends on internal settings of each person, the ability to manage one’s mood, ability to notice the good, the positive, the bright side of life. It is an indispensable and one of the most important conditions for a long healthy life. And it is for this that the majority of us are aspiring, right?”, underscores Prof. Vladimir N.
