We held our 8th BME Mental Health Conference on Thursday 27th October at New Testament Assembly Tooting. We would like to thank everyone for coming along and contributing.
We heard from David Bradley, Chief Executive of the local Mental Health Trust, on the system change processes being enabled by his organisation; Dr. Frank Keating on the social factorsthat impact on the health of African and African CAribbean men; Rachel Rose Burrell on her research into the role of the black church and mental health; Bishop Delroy Powell on the role of faith leaders and a performane by TIA on the experience of black women and mental health. This was supplemented by our Black History Exhibition and community heroes.
We will be making this an ongoing conversation and you are able to join in on our blog here. We have our BME Mental Health Forum and Newsletter we send round monthly. Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you would like to know more and how to get involved.
