Carers Study: We want to better support carers: Are you a carer? If so we would like your help.
The study is to help understand how carers access education and support in developing the skills they need for their role as a carer.

A Feasibility study of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for older people with treatment-resistant generalised anxiety disorder (FACTOID)
If you are aged 65 and over and have difficulties with worrying then we would like your help in developing a new form of treatment to help with this: Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.
Acceptance and Commitment Therapy is a form of talking therapy that helps people learn how to live with distressing thoughts and feelings, while still doing things that really matter to them.
The FACTOID team are currently conducting a research study to see whether they can develop this type of therapy for older people who have difficulties with worrying that have not responded well to treatment.
For further information on this please contact Kate Kimona on 020 3108 7833 or email email@example.com
