Identifying signs of anxiety and depression in older people

NHS England has published new guidance to help identify the tell-tale signs of anxiety and depression in people aged 55 and older. Mental health in older people has been published to support research from Age UK which has shown nearly half of adults aged 55 and older have experienced depression or anxiety, with more than a third saying they did not know where to go for help. The guidance is aimed at GPs, who are the first port of call for many older people, but could be useful more widely.
