According to research conducted by the charity ‘Mind’, African-Caribbean people are five times more likely to be diagnosed with schizophrenia, 44% more likely to be sectioned under the Mental Health Act and 29% more likely to be restrained than their white counterparts.

Join us as experts from charities and academia come together to talk about Black mental health in Leeds and in relation to the Black Lives Matter movement across the world. We will be discussing issues facing accessibility to services, culturally competent support and how we as a community can raise awareness.
