NDTI launches a new programme

Alliance member The National Development Team for Inclusion (NDTi) is launching a new programme as part of the Big Skills Share 2012.  Mental health problems in later life are not a natural consequence of ageing, and yet many older people experience serious, on-going and debilitating mental health problems.  Older people with mental health problems are often stigmatised, isolated and unheard.

Supported by Comic Relief, NDTi’s Older Leaders for Change in Mental Health project is designed to raise the profile of older people’s mental health and wellbeing.  Working in two areas in England – London and Leicestershire, the project will build the confidence, skills and capacity of older people with mental health problems to lead and influence change in their own lives and in wider service developments.   A key aim of the project will be to increase the voice, visibility and influence of older people in their own support, as well as in wider service and community developments.
