Mental Health Support for Older People

Here’s some information on a service Hertfordshire Partnership University is providing.

Older people have been impacted by the pandemic and are reporting much higher than normal levels of mental distress. Older people who experience low mood or anxiety often view their symptoms as an unavoidable part of the ageing process. But this does not have to be the case.

The Hertfordshire Wellbeing Service can help improve how older people feel. This can lead to improved emotional wellbeing, improved self-care including: management of physical health and health conditions, reduced isolation and increased levels of confidence and enhanced quality of life.

This service is supporting the national campaign to raise awareness and increase referrals to talking therapy services for people aged 65+.
