Older men mental health action call by Mind Cymru

A charity is warning that more needs be done to help older men in Wales who are suffering from mental health problems.

Mind Cymru says older men are more prone to suicide than younger adults, but many do not receive the support and medical guidance they need.

Its figures show that one in four have symptoms of depression, severe enough to warrant intervention.

Men with mental health problems have formed a support group to help others in Tondu, near Bridgend.

Carwyn Jones reports.
