The below webinar from a collaboration with MIND discusses the barriers to access for BAME individuals and how we can address unmet needs. In addition, there's a discussion on how people with mental illnesses that have a similar prevalence in all races are treated differently due to their background. The event was held by the Ipswich and Suffolk Council for Racial Equality and the Ipswich and East Suffolk CCG for a discussion on mental health within the BAME community.
