Service Definitions

Assessment services made provided for people when their mental state is seen to be a risk to their own health or safety or for the protection of others, and our needing to be in hospital for assessment/treatment.
This is an approach to treatment that involves working with people to help them change their emotions, thoughts and behaviour. A person's personal beliefs are addressed in order to understand and change behaviour.
Old age consists of ages nearing the average lifespan of human beings, and thus the end of the human life cycle. Euphemisms for older people include advanced adult, elderly, and senior or senior citizen. Older people have limited regenerative abilities and are more prone to disease, syndromes, and sickness than other adults.
Psychotherapy covers a variety of different talking therapies used to treat depression. Most psychotherapy services involve talking to a licensed professional during a scheduled series of appointments.
