BME Mental Health Forum

September 28 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The BME Mental Health Forum has now been running for 8 years with the aim of addressing inequalities across our Mental Health systems by re-orientating our approaches towards community-centred solutions.

Our aim is to tailor and coproduce services that are culturally sensitive and appropriate for the BME community. Our agenda for this year includes co-producing pledges made by the SWLSTG Mental Health Trust at the HOBV8 Conference:

-to work with schools
-raise cultural awareness amongst staff
-provide training on the challenges faced by Wandsworth’s diverse communities
-highlight the benefits of alternative therapies and activities, other than medication.

The Forum also helps to inform an annual Black Mental Conference ‘Healing Our Broken Village’. You can watch a short film of the last conference held in October 2016 here.

This is a formal network with a representative holding a seat on the Boroughs Mental Health Partnership Board.

Future forum meetings will be held on:

28th September 2017

16th November 2017

All meetings will be held at Balham Library,  16 Ramsden Rd, London SW12 8QY at 2:00pm till 4:00pm

The Forum is also an active member of the Wandsworth Clinical Reference Sub Group on BME Mental Health Inequalities.

A recent presentation on the work of this Group, by its Chair, Dr Tom Coffey, can be seen here: Wandsworth Mental Health Clinical Ref Group
