Mental health in BAME Groups
I have achieved a CACHE Level 2 certificate qualification in mental health awareness, dated October 2019
In England and Wales, nearly a fifth of people come from a BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) background. The mental health of BAME communities is important because people from these communities often face individual and societal challenges that can affect access to healthcare and overall mental health.
I’m a woman of colour from BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) background and representing the statistic 29.3% black British women (29.3%) prevalence of common mental health problems.
People from black minority ethnic (BME) groups are hiding mental health issues because of cultural stigmas about the condition.

I finally feel confident and brave to share my mental health story to your BAME event delegates and I no longer feel ashamed that I have a mental illness. I invite you to attend my upcoming Mental Health Seminar on Mon 17th February 2020, to here my story. Event link here.
Time To Change reports; Talking about mental health in the BAME communities is still very much a taboo topic and hardly ever spoken about and I want to break this cycle
