The response was produced by the Foundation with the following organisations:

  • Friends, Families & Travellers

The aim of the working group is to improve knowledge and understanding of mental health, particularly from the perspective of Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.

The response also seeks to provide a greater sense of clarity and contribute a significant but often overlooked perspective that is critical for enabling better outcomes for Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities.
