OASIS – Older Adult Mental Health Carer Support and Information Sessions

Are you supporting an older person (over 65 years) with a mental health need such as anxiety or depression?

Would you like to talk to other people who are supporting someone too?

The Older Adult Community Mental Health, Worcestershire Health and Care NHS Trust have partnered with Worcestershire Association of Carers (WAC) to provide an online support programme for carers of older adults with mental health needs. The sessions provide the opportunity to develop understanding about mental health and to learn more about local support available. The group sessions will be via Webex (an online video hosting tool) and facilitated by members of staff from the older adult mental health team and WAC. You will probably be new to Webex but don't worry support is available to get you online - but you will need a device like a laptop/tablet and the internet.


The group programme will run weekly for 6 weeks, and then a final review session a month later. We anticipate a small group of about 6 carers and all attendees will be expected to attend all sessions where possible.

Sessions and dates are as follows (all sessions are 10:30am -11:30am):

Session 1 - (21st April) - Introductions and sharing experiences​

Session 2 - (28th April) - Causes and affects of Anxiety and Depression

Session 3 - (5th May) - Keeping Well - Psychological Interventions and Medication

Session 4 - (12th May) - Communication, Language and Problem Solving

Session 5 - (19th May) - Being a Carer: ways of coping 

Session 6 - (26th May) - Services and Resources that help you and your relative

Session 7​ - (23rd June) - Review and Evaluation
