Abstract:
Studies on old people’s mental health keeps on increasing with the growth of aging population.However,a well-accepted finding remains unaccomplished. Some studies showed that most old people’s levelof mental health is high,while other studies revealed that the psychological distresses of old people should notbe ignored. The contradiction of these studies may come from the differences in the situation where old peoplelive. As home-based care for the aged people is still the first choice of most Chinese old people nowadays,three kinds of Chinese emerging family situations,i.e. grandparenting,loss of independence and NEET (notin education,employment or training),are used in this article to describe the influences of Chinese emergingfamily situations on old people’s mental health. Lastly,some suggestions about research and practice in thisfiled are also put forward. Based on these reviews,a psychological assistance program (characterized by thecombination of self help,interpersonal help and professional help,i.e“. three helps”) for old people’s mentalhealth is also discussed.
