for better mental health

Our equality improvement work

Not everyone has the access to mental health support and services that's right for them. We are working hard to make sure this is not the case. Throughout our history, we have supported people facing multiple forms of discrimination, such as discrimination because of their mental health problems as well as their ethnicity, race, religion, sexuality or disability.

Fighting for equalities and human rights

Many of you have told us you regularly face prejudice and discrimination, whether it’s by your employer, a service provider or anyone in society. Our Policy and Campaigns team are working hard to make sure this changes. Take a look at some of the areas they are focusing on.

Race, ethnicity and mental health

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.  

Young Black men

We are working to improve the resilience of young Black men and support them to take better care of their mental health and wellbeing. This includes our Young Black Men's programe which works with young Black men to build services around their lived experience.

Mental health and being LGBTIQ+

Those of us who are lesbian, gay, bi or trans are far more likely to experience a mental health problem than others because of the discrimination we face. Find out about our work with the LGBTQ community.

Our work with Muslim communities

We have worked 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.

Nasa Begum legacy: empowering South Asian women

We have worked to support the wellbeing of South Asian women and empowered them to tackle the stigma and discrimination surrounding mental health, thanks to support from the legacy of campaigner, Nasa Begum.

Mental health of people with autism

We believe people on the autistic spectrum who are also experiencing mental health problems deserve to receive better support. Find out about our guidance for professionals.
