At a time of increasing interest in mental health in later life, the role of public health approaches is potentially heightened. This paper draws on interview data with older people living in London to consider the interplay between personal and public approaches to health and well-being. The interviews were under taken as part of the midpoint review of the UK government's 10-year strategy for older people (Healthcare Commission et al, 2006) and the social characteristics of London are considered.

Authors:
MANTHORPE Jill, ILIFFE Steve
Journal article citation:
Mental Health Today, November 2008, pp.26-29.
Publisher:

Place of publication:

The authors discuss some of the challenges facing commissioners who are purchasing mental health services for older people. They briefly highlight some of the main complexities which include: the complexity of older people's identities; the make up of workforces; the difficult nature of work with older people; and the multiple agencies involved in working with older people. It is argued that consistent application of a long-term strategy, which allows the accumulation of small changes across agencies and disciplines, is likely to be the key to success. It sets out the issues that need to be addressed, the pitfalls to avoid, and examines a series of objectives for commissioners.

This project was funded under the Higher Education Funding Council for England's Special Initiative to Encourage High Quality Provision for Students with Learning Difficulties and Disabilities.  This initiative offered higher education institutions (HEIs) support in developing their disability services to meet the demands of the Disability Discrimination Act 1995 at a time when the numbers and diversity of the student population were increasing.  Throughout the nineties, student counselling services regularly identified concerns about increasing levels of severe mental health problems in the student population, and, as academics, the project team were familiar with the high levels of anxiety generated by individual cases.

Working with older people from black and minority ethnic groups who have depression

Authors:
MANTHORPE Jill, MORIARTY Jo
Journal article citation:
Quality in Ageing, 10(1), March 2009, pp.24-31.
Publisher:
Pier Professional
Place of publication:

Despite the growing evidence base about depression and anxiety and its application to service settings and practice, there is still a shortage of practice examples about what works and for whom. This is particularly true of specialist groups, such as people from black and minority ethnic backgrounds. This article discusses policy and legislative encouragements to think about equality of access and diversity issues in mental health services and wider mental health promotion activities. It analyses recent research and policy documents in the context of demographic change and practice. It argues that the context of personalisation in England may provide new opportunities to consider what older people will find most acceptable and effective in meeting their needs, but notes the challenges that this will bring to community-based organisations and specialist services.

Learning through inquiry

Author:
MANTHORPE Jill
Journal article citation:
Journal of Mental Health, 7(1), February 1998, pp.1-7.
Publisher:

Place of publication:
London

Recent inquiries into acts of homicide committed by individuals with a history of involvement in psychiatric and mental health services have been highly influential throughout the 1990s in the UK. This editorial focuses on one enquiry The Hampshire Report (Mishcon 1996) which concerned Mr Francis Hampshire, summarises its findings and draws attention to the features that distinguish it from the body of most other inquiries. The final part of the article relates the inquiry to services for older people, arguing that many issues relating to age arise from the findings.

Early onset dementia: a case of ill-timing?

Authors:
TINDALL Linda, MANTHORPE Jill
Journal article citation:
Journal of Mental Health, 6(3), June 1997, pp.237-249.
Publisher:
Informa Healthcare
Place of publication:
London

The experience of dementia for individuals and families, when it is a younger person which is affected by the illness, is rarely considered. Existing specialist literature in this area is analysed in this article. Most work is rooted in a medical context but the social impact is important, particularly in relation to issues of the life-course. Examines the case for specialist service provision and argues for the development of new research agendas to locate the experience of early onset dementia (EOD) within a more coherent theoretical framework.
