As per figures, close to 40% people having mild dementia are found to be affected by these conditions.

The new study is published in the journal eClinicalMedicine to establish talking therapies are really effective in people with dementia.

The study too 2,515,402 people who had either depression or significant anxiety. Some of them even had a treatment via the national ‘Improving Access to Psychological Therapies’ (IAPT) service in England between 2012 and 2019.
