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

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.

African and Caribbean men have negative perceptions of mental health services and therefore delay seeking help. Source; Race Equality Foundation
