Dementia And Older People’s Mental Health

The NHS Long Term Plan and NHS Mental Health Implementation Plan 2019/20 – 2023/24 commit the NHS to ensuring consistent access to mental health care for older adults with functional mental health needs and to addressing the mental health needs of older adults wherever they may arise or present, based on need and not age.

The Dementia and Older Peoples Mental Health Programme within Yorkshire and the Humber Clinical Network supports delivery of these core clinical programmes by connecting commissioners, providers, professionals, patients and the public across pathways of care with the aim of improving mental health outcomes. This is achieved by sharing best practice, benchmarking quality and outcomes and driving improvement where required, through targeted support.
