EnvisAGE is a discussion journal edited by Age Cymru, which explores issues affecting older people. In this edition, we shine a spotlight on the mental health and wellbeing of older people.

Dr Lis Boulton from Age UK explores the barriers that older people may experience in accessing mental health services, and Sam Young at Age Cymru describes the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on older people’s mental health and wellbeing.

Laura Tipper of Veterans NHS Wales provides an overview of the specialised priority service to improve the mental health and wellbeing of veterans. Claire Morgan and Jane Healey of Carers Wales highlight how the health of unpaid carers can be negatively impacted by their caring role.

The article by Sara Walters features the Roots to Recovery project delivered in partnership between Mind Pembrokeshire and Carmarthen and Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority. Gail Colbridge, Age Cymru Powys and Rachael Owen, Care & Repair in Powys provide an insight into the Mamwlad project which promotes wellbeing in rural communities.

In our final article Bethan Edwards from Marie Curie Cymru focuses on the support available to people across Wales who have been bereaved.
