Black Asian and Minority Ethnic communities
Lambeth has the highest number of Black people accessing mental health services in the UK. Black Thrive was created to initiate the system change required to see Black residents thrive across the borough.
BAATN (The Black, African and Asian Therapy Network)
There are services available throughout the UK which offer free counselling specifically set up to serve the BME community. Many of these services encourage you to self-refer but if you are unsure your GP can signpost or assist you with a referral.
British Asian Trust
Mental health is a critically under-resourced issue in South Asia. Moreover, a lack of public awareness leaves superstitions and fears unchallenged. We are working to end the stigma and transform support for people with mental health needs.
