Older people with mental health issues are being failed by the NHS in England, according to a charity.
Age UK claims elderly people with problems such as depression and anxiety are seen as "second class citizens".
It has accused local health bodies of missing targets to improve access to talking therapy for older people.
Health officials set a target that 12% of referrals to the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programme should be for people aged 65 and over.
But a new report from the charity suggests that only around 6% of referrals are for older people.
The charity has estimated that it will take 15 years for the 12% target to be met.
Age UK estimates that there are around three million people over the age of 60 living with depression in the UK.
