About this event

The process of ageing can feel unfamiliar and may sometimes result in anxiety. However, as anxiety is experienced at varying intensities, it can be difficult to distinguish regular and severe levels of anxiety – the latter often requiring medical intervention. What are the signs we can look out for to determine if we should seek medical help?

Join psychiatrist Dr Seow Su Yin in this interactive session as she takes you through how to recognise anxiety and the ways to differentiate safe levels of anxiety from more serious anxiety that may be indicative of a disorder. Dr Seow will also share tips on self-care and improving both mental and physical health.

Take a look at these pre-reading materials to learn more about anxiety disorder and ways to achieve mental wellness:

Connections: Past, Present and Future 

How can we make the journey of ageing a better one? By reconnecting to our past, examining our present, and striving towards the future, we will reimagine how this voyage can be made more gratifying. Join us to connect with gerontology experts and community partners as we delve into facets of ageing like caregiving, gerontechnology, lifelong learning, and physical and mental well-being. 

Jointly brought to you by the National Library Board (NLB) and Singapore University of Social Sciences (SUSS).
