Mental Health and Racial Disparities Seminar

As part of the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance, we are involved in a project on Mental Health and Racial Disparities. We would like to invite you to attend a seminar on 28th November at the Race Equality Foundation.

The project aims to improve our understanding of racial disparities in mental health and improving the ability of commissioners to implement effective strategies to reduce racial disparities in mental health.  The Race Equality Foundation is leading this project, as part of the VCSE Health and Wellbeing Alliance. Our partnership will implement a co-produced evidence-based approach to deliver change in mental health support and services.

The aim of the seminar is to bring together key players in ethnicity and mental health across NHS England, the Department of Health and Social Care, Public Health England, the voluntary sector, and service users. We will be using the seminar as an opportunity to discuss racial disparities in mental health, as well as share examples of good practice and progress in addressing these. We plan to use the discussion to establish what works and with whom, and to ensure that this is robustly reviewed.

If you would be interested in attending the seminar, please let us know by the 9th November. Refreshments and lunch will be provided. If you would like assistance with travel costs or expenses for the event, please contact Samir Jeraj at [email protected]. Follow the link below to the Eventbrite page to register. You will also be asked for any dietary requirements you have.
