British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy invites care homes to complete short survey


The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) is calling for Care Home Managers to complete a short survey which is now live at

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

The survey (which should take less than 10 minutes to complete) aims to find out whether talking therapies are available in UK care homes; and where they are available how the mental health needs of care home residents are being identified.

Dr Jo Pybis, Senior Research Fellow at BACP explains;

This survey is part of a wider piece of work in which we’re aiming to raise awareness of older people’s mental health, to promote conversations around older people and depression, and to increase understanding that dementia is not the only condition older people may experience in later life.

We would really appreciate Care Home Managers taking the time to complete the survey (which is completely confidential) and will use the information provided to better understand what can be done to improve the provision of talking therapies in care homes.”

Please do the survey here

The closing date for survey responses is Friday 21 July 2017.
