Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH), Mental Health


Older adults with depression or mild cognitive impairment have a significantly elevated risk for Alzheimer's Dementia (AD), even if they do not yet show symptoms. However, there are currently no preventive treatments to protect these older adults against AD.
