Abstract
Objective: The aim of the study was to measure the emotional condition and the interpersonal forms of relation in a group of mature students (Aged 55+). Method: 45 students attending the University of Older Adults in the Basque Country in Bilbao, completed assessments such as the Brief Symptom Inventory (BSI), as well as the Relationships with Others scale (ERA). Socio-demographic data were also collected. Data was analyzed using T tests and multivariate analyses. Results: Data suggests attending the University for older adults may improve mental health and relationships with others for people. Conclusion: As life expectancy increases, population ageing is a major global trend and there is a need for societies to become more prepared to improve the quality of life in later decades. We believe it is important to continue creating resources for old people since many people reaching retirement age remain healthy and vital. As such, without psychological health in later life there will be significant problems in all domains of older people’s lives. Clinical Implications: Since resources such as university for older adults improve the mental health of the elderly is important to continue creating resources for them.
