Mental health in BAME Groups

BAME STATISTICS

BAME people are more frequently subjected to involuntary psychiatric hospitalisation than others, particularly young, black men.

 

BAME groups are generally considered to be at higher risk of developing mental ill-health

1 in 4 people from BAME communities don't share their mental health issues

My mission to use my voice as a mental health speaker to break the walls of stigma in the BAME community, by teaching others there is no shame if you are suffering with mental health

 

I no longer feel ashamed that I have a bipolar mental illness.

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.
