Haringey Thinking Space special event on Black mental Health
Wed 10 May 2017, 18:00 – 20:30 BST
Black communities have the highest rates of diagnosed serious mental illness, and are over-represented in psychiatric wards. They are also more likely to come into contact with mental health services when they are in a crisis, and are therefore more likely to be admitted to mental health services involuntary and to receive compulsory treatment.
This Thinking Space event aims to provide an opportunity for black people in Haringey to meet to think about what as parents, families, individuals, and as communities can we do to help improve mental health and well-being and reduce the risk of a friend or family member developing a serious mental health problem or entering mental health services involuntary?
Refreshments will be provided on the night and invited guest speakers include:
- Baffour Babbio, Psychotherapist, Nafsiyat
- Dr Jasmine Chin, Clinical Psychologist, Tavistock Centre
- Patricia Pemberton, Team Manager and Senior Social Worker, Tavistock Centre
