The BME Forum are working alongside NHS England and South London and Maudsley on the recommendations of a Mental Health Act review, to improve access experiences and outcomes for Black communities within the Mental Health services.
The Patient Carer Race Equality Framework (PCREF) has been developed in response to the findings, which revealed startling statistics in relation to the care received by Black communities within South London and Maudsley Mental Health Service.
Statistics have shown that Black people and minority ethnic people are less likely to access mental health support in primary care i.e. GP and more likely to end up in crisis care.
They have also shown that Black people are more likely to access Mental Health Services via the Criminal Justice system and are more likely to be detained under the Mental Health Act than White people.
We are keen to hear from Black Community members and Organisation’s, and service users alike to join the movement – this is to promote joint working and co-production with South London and Maudsley to address the disparities in care and to improve access experiences and outcomes for Black communities within the Mental Health services.
The BME Forum will be hosting a number of events over the coming months to raise awareness and build a community voice in support of the change PCREF offers Black communities.
We have teamed up with the South London and Maudsley Recovery College to provide our community wit free training.
