WHAT IS EMHIP?
The Ethnicity and Mental Health Improvement Project (EMHIP) is an attempt to reduce ethnic inequalities in access, experience and outcome of mental health care.
EMHIP has been designed to be a practical, locality-based service improvement programme to bring about change for Black Minority Ethnic (BME) communities in mental health care.
The aim of the programme is to reduce inequalities in three specific areas where BME communities fare worse: in access, experience and outcomes of mental health care.
EMHIP is a collaborative project involving
South West London ICS (NHS)
South London and Maudsley (SLaM)
Croydon BME Forum
and networks of BME voluntary, faith and community groups.
