Older people need help too!

This article [here] talks about some of the reasons why older people tend to get less help than others when they experience depression and anxiety. These reasons include them being less likely to reach out for help, GPs at times not recognising the signs of difficulties, and society in general tending to expect depression to be a natural consequence of ageing, loss and loneliness. There is a link in the article to an NHS Choices mood self-assessment tool [also here].
