Abstract

This commentary considers the demographic ‘bulge’ of the so‐called ‘baby boomer’ generation and the public mental health challenge that this group will represent as they move into old age. Toby Williamson argues that now is the time to start a debate with the aim of identifying long‐term solutions to these new challenges.
