As part of Black History Month and Mental Health Awareness Day, The Rapha Project is organising a series of talks to raise awareness of issues of mental health, particularly as it affects the young black and ethnic miniority community.
Mental health is often a subject that people are reluctant to discuss, a myriad of stereotypes and perceptions of people with mental health are often barriers to help and support. Yet the prevalence of mental health is growing particularly within the young black and ethnic miniority communities.
Its time to talk........Lets talk mental health
The first workshop in the series is centred around the video "Being Black and Going Crazy?" and is followed by facilitated discussion led by our Youth Counsellor Belinda Barnaby.
Discussion themes aim to explore:
Mental health and the black and ethnic community
Perceptions stereotypes and culture
Mental health and its impact on young people
Support that's available
