Community mental health projects
One in four people will experience a mental health problem at some point in their life. This means they are common and affect a significant number of people. Marginalised communities, including Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) communities, face unique challenges that often increase their vulnerability to mental ill health.
We aim to understand and respond to these challenges through a number of ways:
- community wellbeing groups - a number of local organisations working directly with marginalised groups work in partnership to improve mental health outcomes for their communities
- regular community mental health promotion events where we offer mental health information and signpost people to the right services.
For more information about any of the above projects and to find out if there’s a project near you, contact the Community Development Team. Keep an eye out for us at community fun days and if you’d like us to visit your community event, contact us.
