Therapy for the Elderly - November 2013 - It is a shame that more of the elderly are not encouraged to have therapy, perhaps this is also to do with the "stiff upper lip" way of thinking.

'The National Audit of Psychological Therapies, the second such audit carried out by the Royal College of Psychiatrists (RCP) and based on data from 2012, found only 6% of service users were over 65 - despite this group making up an estimated 21% of the total population with such common mental health problems.'
