We all know that as we get older, we can suffer from physical ailments.  Whilst not serious, they can restrict movement and cause us to limit our activities.  This can have an impact on our mental health and general sense of wellbeing.   We can get help for our physical aches and pains and this also applies to our mental health.  Independent Age is a charity which focuses on older people and began its life in 1863 before launching as Independent Age in 2005.  The link below will take you to a page which is about mental health and support to help you manage it.  I would encourage you to explore the website itself as it has a wealth of advice and leaflets to help us in continuing to live an independent and healthy life.

They also have a helpline if you would like to have a personal chat.  It is free on 0800 319 6789
