Our round table meetings are a great opportunity to talk about the work you do, and discuss how access to therapy for older people can be increased.
Depression and anxiety are underdiagnosed amongst older adults across the UK, and when diagnoses are made older people are less likely to be referred for therapy.
The meetings are free of charge and will take place from 11am to 3.30pm on:
- Saturday 22 September at the Quaker Meeting House, Cardiff
- Friday 2 November at the Edinburgh Quaker meeting house
- Wednesday 12 December at Mossley Mill, Newtonabbey
Please email email@example.com to find out more.
