Growing older should be a time to enjoy life without the pressures of working and supporting a family. But many elderly people find themselves feeling lonely, unhappy and hopeless. We explore the difficult topic of self-harm and suicide among the elderly with consultant geriatric psychiatrist Dr Bharathi Vengadasalam.
