Physical and Mental Health of Older Prisoners (PAMHOP)

The overall aim of the project is to co-produce a tool kit for older prisoners with physical and common mental-health disorders (depression and anxiety).

The study has five elements:

  • To synthesize the evidence to identify effective programme elements to help improve the mental health of older prisoners
  • To assess the socio demographic characteristics and unmet needs of older prisoners using a survey and qualitative interviews
  • To develop an economic resource protocol to inform the main trial
  • To disseminate the findings with support from the Prison Radio Association
  • To co-produce a new intervention tool kit and assess the feasibility and acceptability on the intervention tool kit.

Listen to Dr Amanda Perry talking about the results of a systematic review on interventions to support mental and physical health in older people in custody.
