We are excited to share our new opportunity to fund and work with an organisation who'd like to expand their work with young people impacted by racial trauma.
We're looking to support an organisation working with young people of colour from Black and Asian backgrounds, and other racialised groups, who have experienced poor mental health due to racism, discrimination and its traumatic impact.
We want to work together to provide a creative and innovative space for young people of colour to research and generate ideas. We hope this space will enable them to propose ways to support their mental health, and that of other young people who have experienced racial trauma.
Mind’s ambition is to become a truly anti-racist organisation and an unflinching advocate for racial justice and mental health. We’re only at the start of this work and recognise that we have a long way to go. We hope that this work will create and strengthen our relationships with community organisations, and provide rich insight into how young people who have experienced racial trauma want to be supported by us.
You can find out more about this opportunity by reading the partner brief provided below. You can also request a 1-1 chat with one of our team to talk through any ideas or questions. Get in touch with us at [email protected] to arrange.
