Independent Age welcomes the opportunity to submit evidence around older men’s mental health to the Women’s Equality Committee.

Research suggests that by 2026 ageing will be the sole driver for increasing the numbers of people with any form of mental disorder.

Older people are as likely to experience mental health problems as any other age group. However, they seek help for mental health less than younger people, and when they do, they don’t always get the best response from health or care professionals.
