This is just my own dumb theory that is not based on any real study but they say rates of dementia have actually been decreasing since the 90s and they're not sure why. I had a thought that since SSRIs became popular in the 90s they may have some preventative effect against dementia. Many of psych med metabolites are not filtered out by water treatment plants before going back into the drinking water so even people not prescribed medicine get trace doses of popular medications (prozac for ex).

Personally I'm not too concerned about SSRIs causing harder to treat depression as I know I'll most likely be on medicine for the rest of life. I feel they're safe though. Haven't read too many anecdotes over the years of people claiming to have long term side effects after ceasing any SSRI.....
