Talking therapies for older adults

This publication provides guidance on best and promising practice for talking therapies for staff working with older people in mental health and addiction services.
New Zealand’s older population is growing significantly. By 2031, almost one quarter of New Zealanders will be aged 65 and over. Mental health and addiction services will continue to see increasing numbers of older adults. This is the first guide to be produced in New Zealand that specifically addresses talking therapies for older people.
