One in 10 older people (>65 years) have a reduced quality of life due to an anxiety disorder. These older adults receive treatment three times less often treatment compared to 18-65-year-olds with an anxiety disorder. Gert-Jan Hendriks received a ZonMw grant to study, together with a.o. BSI-colleagues Eni Becker and Nessa Ikani, the (cost-)effectiveness of exposure therapy for those elderly people.
