Older People’s Mental Health Services

We provide a range of services for older people with mental health needs across the county. Older people have similar mental health needs to people of a working age, although some illnesses (such as dementia) are more prevalent. Most referrals are made by the GP, but other professionals can also make referrals. People can also refer themselves to our service, but we may ask you to see your GP first if there are recent changes to their physical health.
