We work to remove inequality of opportunity in the mental health sector. We have long history of supporting people facing multiple discrimination (for instance, discrimination because of their mental heath problems as well as other characteristics such as ethnicity, religion, sexuality or disability).
Anyone experiencing a mental health problem should get both support and respect. However, we know that for many people from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities this is still not the case. Find out more about our work adressing this.
Those of us who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or trans are far more likely to experience a mental health problem than others because of wider discrimination in society. We are working together to reduce this disproportionality.
We work with Muslim communities across the UK to improve emotional resilience and support wellbeing in a culturally appropriate way, building on Islamic principles and teachings from the Qur'an.
We believe people on the autistic spectrum or with a learning disability who are also experiencing mental health problems deserve to receive better support than what is currently offered. We are working together with our local Minds to make this happen.
