A personal view of BAME Mental Health - A panel discusion
There are huge disparities in mental health services for people from black and minority ethnic (BAME) groups. People from this group are more likely to be diagnosed with mental health problems, less likely to get a good outcome from treatment and more likely to disengage from mental health services. The reasons for this include racism and poverty.
This fantastic panel, made of up of a mix of experts, professionals and those with a personal story will particularly focus on those affected by poor mental health and explore solutions to the challenges, followed by an audience Q&A.
Chaired by Delrose Bowes, Coordinator Wellbeing, Psychology & Counselling programmes at City Lit and joined by Camillea Johnson, L.B.Q. Womxn of Colour UK; Sandra Kerr CBE, Race Equality Director, Business in the Community; Nisba Ahmed, Equality Improvement Leader, Mind; Anthony Davis, integrative counsellor and psychotherapist.
