11:00am Saturday 13th October 2012 in News
The Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Dale Smith, helped to launch a forum to tackle elderly mental health problems in Bradford.
The Older People’s Mental Health Partnership Forum is the brainchild of Positive Minds, an alliance campaigning for better health services for older people. It is run in partnership with Bradford Council.
Marilyn Foster, chairman of Positive Minds, said: “What we are trying to do is set up some networks in the city which are going to help us to influence how mental health in older people is tackled. It is about early intervention and prevention work and looking at how older people can help with that.”
