Have your say on the future of mental health care

  1. Firstly, preventing the root causes of mental ill-health such as poverty or loneliness can go a long way to improving wellbeing.
  2. Secondly, making sure that there’s the right support at an early stage can reduce the chance of mental health issues becoming serious.
  3. And thirdly, we know that stigma plays a large part in why older people don’t access mental health treatment — so action to reduce that, for example by increasing the number of mental health campaigns that target older people and educating healthcare professionals, can make a huge difference.
