Valuing Experience

Synopsis
A practical video and training pack aimed at anyone who works with older people with mental health needs. In the video, a range of older people speak powerfully about the isolation, discrimination and difficulties they’ve faced, and share what they’ve learned about the help and support they need to live well. The workbook contains training sessions that are designed to link these personal testimonies to best practice in working with older people.
