COTA Tasmania conducted an 'Attitudes to Ageing Survey' in the latter half of 2020. The survey was designed to increase our understanding of what Tasmanians of different ages think about ageing, and included an online survey as well as a postcard style questionnaire.
Tasmania has the oldest population in the country, with around 20 per cent of Tasmanian residents aged
65 or over. Despite this, there is currently no tailored mental health response for older Tasmanians.
