This Working Group is focused on improving the experience of black communities in mental health services. It does this by:

  • Identifying ways to ensure that designated carers feel supported, empowered and included in care decisions, especially with regards to recovery plans
  • Working with the police to operate with a ‘public health’ focus instead of a ‘punishment’ focus when encountering individuals experiencing mental distress
  • Figuring out methods/strategies to address discrimination that black service users experience
  • Improving access to self-management of mental health
