Young African Caribbean men are one of the most overrepresented BME groups in inpatient mental health services in the country. There are multiple reasons for this, but among them are stigma, cultural barriers, and discrimination.
Our work with young African Caribbean aim is therefore aimed at prevention – we want to avoid people becoming so unwell that they need these services in the first place.
This is why we work with organisations engaging with young African Caribbean men to help build resilience, reduce risk factors, and enable the wider community to support the mental heath needs of their young people more effectively.
