+ Mental Health campaign

The Greater Manchester Older People’s Network is currently working with the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership to develop a campaign focusing on older people’s mental health and specifically addressing issues around self-harm and suicide.

 

On 16th September 1-3pm we held an online focus group to help us develop this campaign. We shared some of the current information available in Greater Manchester about older people and their mental wellbeing with the focus group. This helped us to understand what messages work best for our campaign, and we decided the most effective ways to share those messages.

This is an on-going campaign that we hope to launch in early 2022.

At the focus group, illustrator Tom Bailey joined us to capture participants’ contributions. Take a look at his images below.
