Answer: In this TMA I shall begin by providing an overview of the holistic model and its relevance to mental health services in the context of older people. Following on from this I will outline how I believe the holistic model might help meet the mental health needs of older people. To illustrate this, I shall discuss how the holistic model encourages mental health services to consider the whole person and the benefits that this approach may bring; explore how the holistic model helps to reduces ageism and stigma by promoting inclusion and tolerance and discuss how holism supports a focus on spirituality and personal meaning. In addition, I shall outline the challenges that such an approach may meet. Finally, I shall briefly explore how all this may impact on service provision and what may need to happen in order to achieve improvements in mental health services for older people.
