Abstract

Only recently have the health sciences, including nursing, begun to focus on the dynamics of mental health and aging. Reports on rural initiatives, are beginning to appear; these developments have occurred without the benefit of context and direction, however, especially in terms of how these issues apply in rural areas. The article reviews selected issues in the interface of aging and mental health in rural areas. It offers a research agenda comprising descriptive, intervention, and utilization studies as a context to guide research and knowledge development in mental health nursing of rural elderly.
