PHILADELPHIA (April 11) Mental Health and Aging, a project of the Mental Health Association of Southeastern Pennsylvania, published its Philadelphia Mental Health and Aging Resource Guide on their website,

The "Philadelphia Mental Health and Aging Resource Guide" was developed to help older adults and their families and friends to understand how to keep mentally fit and to learn where they can get help if they are concerned about depression, anxiety, alcoholism or other mental health problems. The Guide provides information about resources specifically designed to address the needs of older persons who are seeking advice, counseling, support, advocacy or related help in the Philadelphia area.

The site's most recent upgrade has several new features including "print friendly" pages for ease of use to visitors. In the interest of accessibility, the site is designed to allow the user to change their web browser settings to increase the font size or select a different font type at the visitor's discretion., Inc., who built some of the first accessible websites on the World Wide Web, provides website design and development services to non-profit organizations throughout the country, specializing in strategic planning and accessible design.
