The Senior Blues

Grieving husband John, and sister Carol, have recently lost their sister Mary. 'The Senior Blues' tracing their journey over a year as each struggles through their loss and feelings of bereavement. Both become isolated individuals in a society where older people can become more easily marginalised. They have difficulty asking for, and finding, appropriate help. The film was originally a commission from NHS Islington for a facilitated play to encourage older people to consider Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) as a means of dealing with depression rather than relying on medication.
