New Survey to understand provision of talking therapies in Care Homes

New survey being conducted by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) hope to find out whether talking therapies are available in UK care homes and how the mental health needs of care homes residents are being identified.

The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), is an association that is passionate about the value of counselling and its potential to improve the lives of individuals and communities. It has developed a survey which aims to understand more about the provision of talking therapies (for example counselling) for care homes residents. 

They want to find out whether talking therapies are available in UK care homes and how the mental health needs of care homes residents are being identified.

The information from this survey will be used to support a programme of research around talking therapies for older people and to understand what could be done to improve the provision of talking therapies in care homes.  

To enuure this research programme is as effective as possible they are looking for as many Care Home Managers and Staff as possible to complete this 10 minute survey.
