Non-major depression is an increasingly recognized clinical issue in older adults, as a growing body of evidence points to deleterious effects of this condition on emotional, cognitive and physical health. Yet, research in this area has been limited. This chapter aims to identify the primary clinical and research issues relevant to non-major depression, including a clarification of the nosology, epidemiology, clinical outcomes and comorbidity and treatment modalities.
